Eternal Silence


Silence
Silence when we are walking,
Silence when we think,
Silence is what fills us all,
With a binding eternal link.

Silence in the little children,
Silence in the adults,
Silence wrapping around us all,
Silence pulsing in the walls.

Silence fills this hollow world,
Silence is the choice we make,
Silence is the death of this all,
Silence is our fate.

    This is a wonderful way of addressing an issue that is ever present but never
    addressed. I was also impressed by the structure you chose to express it.
    Repetition is excellant and warranted to make the point. I was very pleased.

That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
