Sounds must go together

Like this:

Consonants and diagraphs 

With the vowels in between

Until you have a word,

And another,

And another. 

Then subjects, objects, verbs, 

All neatly in their place.

Adjectives lined up, 

Just so.

And now, 

Here is a sentence, 

Just born. 

Lying fresh on the page.

Ready to unfurl.
