From “Chocorua to Its Neighbor” by Wallace Stevens

To say more than human things with human voice,
That cannot be; to say human things with more
Than human voice; that, also, cannot be;
To speak humanly from the height or from the depth
Of human things, that is acutest speach

From The Collected Poems of Wallace Stevens
