So many people keep asking me this question, I might as well answer it.
Words of Ivory is the name of a piece of poetry that a friend of mine wrote about... eight or nine years ago. The poem centred around the idea of believing in one's word, standing up for your conviction, and that happiness comes to those who are willing to notice.
One line in particular is very important to me.
"Life calls out the meaning of pure jubilance,
if you'll only take the time to hear it."
There's also a piece of writing out there that which I discovered recently, which used the same phrase. I's purpose is to emphasise the depth and strength of the written word, and the feelings they muster in us.
One has heard poets speak of a quill dropped from an angel's wing. That is the kind of nib of which I feel in need of tonight. If I could but have it just for tonight only, but tonight it is different. Though it comes not, I must make ready to receive a loftier inspiration. Whitest paper, newest pen, ear sensitive, tremulous; heart pure and mind open, broad and clear as the blue air for the most delicate gossamer thoughts to wing through; and snow-white words, lily-white words, words of ivory and pearl, words of silver and alabaster.
