Poets, it is in their nature, they do this through each act of artistic creation. They try "to say" as never "had been said" before; they are trying to rediscover the language and they behave,when they are "inspired" - as if the language had not had a History, it would not had been worn, burnt, desecrated by Time. They are looking over the Ages, to God as if they, the poets, would be the contemporaries of world's beginnings, as they would be the witnesses of Cosmogony.
