If the lost word is lost, if the spent word is spent
If the unheard, unspoken
Word is unspoken, unheard;
Still is the unspoken Word, the Word unheard,
The Word without a word, the Word within
The World and for the World;

And the light shone in darkness and
Against the Word the unstilled World still whirles
About the centre of the silent Word.

O my people, what have I done unto thee.

T.S. Eliot, uit: Ash-Wednesday, V
