Day 298

The Carver of Meanings


The greatness of your dexterous skill

lies always hidden for the eyes fill

Molding my paltry and amorous words

into a meaning greater than lions and birds

Etching from their plaintive sight

the meaning and importance of your right

Through a fastidious and thoughtful mind

A thought is formed from words to find

Taken from the communal form of sense

You chisel your message without pretense

Forming out of stultifying and somber stone

the words of independent truth of your own

So it is to you, the greatest magician of all

that I offer my plaintive words to your call
