I am a namer of words.
I find in the cast-out language
An essence of rhythm and beauty
And baptize it into usage, to delight again.
I chisel words for man's mind
To tell that which he cannot say,
And dares not if he could.
I transform the works of industry
Into realms of god-like wonders
And reap the seeds of imagination.
I unlock the secrets of animals
And make them speak again.
I cause critics to umpire my labors
And acknowledge my art,—
I am a poet.
