My favorite use of synaloepha is in poetry: ’twas, ’tis, heav’ns
“When yond same star that’s westward from the pole
Had made his course t’illume that part of heaven” Shakespeare – Hamlet
This lovism is related to #22, thus I am posting both on the same day. Love you all!
This was the most difficult poem I have ever written. My writing doesn’t usually involve so many shed tears. Though I have not personally experienced the loss of a spouse, I have shared such loss with many friends and family members. Losing a loved one is the most dreadful thing we must face in this life. It is a fear that haunts most of us. I am still working on trusting in the words of Christ, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27) Watching a loved one gradually slip away due to a debilitating disease must be beyond painful. My prayers are with all of you who are facing such heartbreak.
Two of my beautiful granddaughters are the backdrop for this Crush on Words post.
I love this word, but not nearly as much as I love the two young ladies portraying it.
