Ralph Waldo Emerson
Merops (Articulate Speech)

What care I, so they stand the same,?
Things of the heavenly mind,?
How long the power to give them name
Tarries yet behind?

Thus far today your favors reach,
O fair, appeasing presences!
Ye taught my lips a single speech,
And a thousand silences.

Space grants beyond his fated road
No inch to the god of day;
And copious language still bestowed
One word, no more, to say.
