The Meaning of the Words


    When every word means only as meant, 
    no more given to it, nothing taken away,
    no change in implication, no alternative inflection,
    and is heard as it is said, 
    and is known as it is thought,
    so through and through that it can go silent
    and still be what it was and will be,
    will we miss what it was not
    and make up our own words for it
    for the temptation of creating
    what it was not?
