Transfer

One discipline enhances another.

I learn to write,

To put down ideas in good form

I learn to watch my rhetoric

But most of all, I learn to communicate meaning with words.

One discipline enhances another.

I read literature to enlighten myself

And find models.

I see how others use words

To paint pictures, to create images

Through reading, the skill of others inspire me.

One discipline enhances another.

I learn storytelling to communicate

with the spoken word.

I use words,

But voice, gesture, manner,

And eyes send forth a message too.
