TOWARD THE FLIGHT OF IDEAS

   

( To speak passionately of ideas is to become the language )

 

Language should not limp through life

Hobbling down a weary road

On its clay bound course through every day

That shimmering river should not be reduced

To the hauler of commerce 

Or the joiner of souls 

Content to beat the path 

Of the simple and the known

 

   Let language soar

      And glide

          And dive

As it was meant to be

 

Bearing depth on wings

Straining to be free
