William Carlos Williams speaks

Oh that the rocks of the Areopagus had
kept their sounds, the voices of the law!
Or that the great theatre of Dionysius
could be aroused by some modern magic
to release
what is bound in it, stones!
that music might be wakened from them to
melt our ears .

Paterson, IV: iii
