The Word


I no longer want to consult
dictionaries in vain.
I only want the word
that will never be there
and that can't be invented.

One that would resume
and replace the world.

More sun than the sun,
in which we all could
live in communion,
mute,
savouring it.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
