(stirs up the soul that receives)

and Most DIFficult of all:
tHeme,
foRm,
dICtioN;

to resolved oneNess,

ORganiC wHoleneSs;

to obey the rhythm of one's age,

yet/sTilL.... to bring HarmoNy
(articulating, embodying, expressing)

wealth of tHe old and of neW thinGs

to eNvelope within words three hearTs:

Past,
preSent,
fUTuRe.
