///LISTEN TO THYSELF


O! Trainer master
I am the king
This is crown prince
Make his mind waster

Manners of court
He has learnt
Strengthen him so
To make invincible fort

O thy lordship
I would surely do
All my best
With greater hardship
Master trainer to the prince commands

O the prince make hustle
Go to the dense forest
Listen in quietness
What the leaves rustle

Do report back
The voices quiet
I’ll make up
If something lack

PRINE
I spent days a lot
In chasing vices
Perused them closely
But understood them not

MASTER
Go again and now
Listen with great care
What quietness says?
And report me back so
PRINCE
O master I have returned
With a lesson that I learnt
The way of esteem and respect
I’ve from loneliness earned

The success of a man lies
In the sounds that vies
With the conscience
In the deep deep silence

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
