Nothing Need Be Said

Yes you know it, you know it deep down,
it has no words, can make no sound.
You are sure it has been found
because deep down you know it,
even though no words
have yet its thought defined.
And when with a sentence it is adorned
you know it not, for it is lost;
clothed with your words
like a fragrant rose encased with frost.
Yes you know it, you know it deep down,
a seed it planted in the mind;
just watch it grow with time,
like the pearl in the oyster,
like a diamond in the mine.
