XXXV

Even now, I tell myself, there is a language  
to which I might speak and which
would rightly hear me;
responding with eloquence; in its turn,  
negotiating sense without insult
given or injury taken.
Familiar to those who already know it  
elsewhere as justice,
it is met also in the form of silence.

~Geoffrey Hill
