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
