‘The tongue unlocked’ by Motion

Andrew Motion, via the Index on Censorship siteFrom a recent blogpost by Henry Porter, a poem by Andrew Motion (left) on freedom of expression:

The tongue unlocked, with everything to say,
Forgets its borders and lets loose its songs;
The mind receives them and, like alchemy,
Makes gold of what was lost or shot away.
