Silence The Dead Sleeps


Silence The Dead Sleeps
It was not death, for I stood up,
Silence is the language of my seclusion
All the dead are a sleep like sheep,
Silence is my Shadows I do weep,
is not an illusion but skin deep I speak,
Silence is the Reason of my Solitude,
In the night I do hear bells wring dig a ding
Silence and peace they sing,
Silence I do walk without words,
Silence makes me a deep thinker,
for what is to come at noon,
Silence wipes my sad tears,
The difference between despair and fear
Silence summarizes the Experiences of years,
Silence whispers in my ears,
Always gives me a hope to overcome my fears,
Silence the dead do sleep.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
