Interpreting Scripture - Poem by Saiom Shriver
Who among us all knows Aramaic,
Greek, Latin, Hebrew, middle English, Sanskrit,
Which among us is equipped to interpret
Poet's Notes about The Poem
has been described by William Jones, British judge in occupied
19th Century India, as 'more perfect than Latin, more copious than Greek, and
more exquisitely refined than either'. Sanskrit has
8 conjucations and 8 declensions. It is the only language whose syllables as
written match the vibrational pattern of the characters when sounded.
Even famed linguists such as Senator Hayakawa of California and
William Safire, deceased conservative of the NY Times, did not know Sanskrit.
