Silence of Time

When the day begins to move
Noises and voices of thousands
Become common and
I don't want to hear

When the day begins to sleep
Noises and voices sleep with silence
I'm curious to hear and
One can break the night

Surrounded silence
and inside sound
Keep awake my night
I listen and hear and
Everything around inside
Makes strange me
That never special in the day time

Silence of thousands noises and voices
And one sound of the clock
Frightens my heart and
Recall the past that of slept sounds

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
