Hand-in-Hand We Talk

Hand-in-hand with steady steps we walk,
     And steady is our talk:

          Look at this! Look at that!
          This paint's just wrong.
          That house was sold.
          The wind is strong.
          Are you still cold?
          I should have worn a hat.

Talk of neighborhood and politics
     And families for sure,
Plain talk, quiet talk, small talk, steady talk,
     For all our ills a cure.

We walk along our daily course
And language is our vital force.
