Just post whatever word is fun to say, complicated, or just sounds intelligent.

I'll start:

Boulevard

Vignette, peripatetic, or atavistic.

These words are the ones I can remember right now as being rather charming (in my opinion).
"Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto." --Terence

"I believe that the mind can be permanently profaned by the habit of attending to trivial things, so that all our thoughts shall be tinged with triviality."--Thoreau

And--I forgot about this word: Bildungsroman.

My poem is full of them.

Demure as a cellar door
Immortalize forever more
Epiphany stirs infatuations
A fantasy, forth and flowing
Allured, you were, with elations
A cure, a source, always showing
Insatiable, untameable; imploring all the shore
A ruse, made safe and sound -- Encore, I say! Encore!

Lucidity (lucid) is another favorite word of mine.

Did you just take the most aurally appealing words and phrases in the English language and organize them into a poem?

All words

Only the first one is a genuine word.

The second one was made up as a synonym, and specifically to be long.

The third is not a word at all.
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

"glockenspiel" but only when Arnold Swartzeneggar says it in an angry loud tone!
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
