Treasure Island

Michael Wride

(December,5th 1968 / Wells, Somerset, England, UK)

Noiselessness


Too much noise
Empty noise
Try to be with you
All noise

People, kids, cars
Withdraw my mind

Peace of darkness,
Stars flickering,
Quiet wind whispering,
A duet with the tide,
Audible, but humanly unfathomable,
A gentle peace,
Natural,

Your noise,
With you,
At last!

Lying back
Listening to the sweetest sound of
Nothing

But everything

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this in the late 1980s. Our house was often busy and there was a tension in the atmosphere there owing to my Dad's illness. There was often the noise of traffic outside too. I used to retreat into my bedroom for some peace This was probably one of my first attempts to meditating...trying to find some peace and quite within and actually achieving it (for once!)

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
