Meaning, as grounds for reason;
believing, for reading what’s found in our cup
when the coffee is gone; speaking, for the sake of words
alone: dear ones, sweet ones, bringing,
our language along.

Thank you, Jan. Wise enough to smile at such a kind remark.

I'll read this one again, first thing in the dark, over a mug of coffee. See what turns up.

Makes sense, Jonathan, since that’s the way it was written....
