The Ten Most Beautiful Words
                                                              by Ralph Fletcher

           I saw a list of the ten
           most beautiful words
           in the English language:

                     dawn, hush, mist, lullaby,
                     tranquil, luminous, chimes,
                     golden, melody, murmuring.

  I liked them all, the sound of them,
  especially murmuring.

  It made me picture
                                 across still water.

  And now I’ve got
              ten shiny new coins
               jingling in my pocket.


  1. And filling our pockets with them as well!

  2. I love the words you chose as the ten most beautiful, and carrying them in our pockets is the perfect image. Thank you.

  4. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
