The Whittrick by Edwin Morgan

The answer waits in the question that’s half-spoken, / The oak in the acorn, theory in worry, / The poem you write is already foreshadowed / When you pencil the first warm phrase, and every word / Is a choice that lessens choice, till the anxious voice / Picks one last possibility out of silence.
