Meena Iyer


Silence Speaks


Silence speaks
A thousand words
From the sinewy mountain peak
Bellows even,
starting from end
and ending from start
Silence speaks,
Through the dancing leaves
A lovers heave

Silence speaks
a thousand words
through the lady's glance
And the lamb's prance
Straight from the heart,
A work of art
silence speaks
Screams through the dark night
echoes with the ray of light

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
