Nescit Vox Missa Reverti
But he that hath misseid, I dar wel sayn,In Nevill Coghill's modern English version:
He may by no wey clepe his word again.
Thing that is seid, is seid, and forth it gooth,
Thogh him repente, or be him leef or looth.
Whereas a wicked word, I tell you plain,
Once said can never be recalled again.
What's said is said and goes upon its way,
Like it or not, repent it as you may.
