Treasure Island

Thomas Hood

(1789-1845 / London / England)

Silence

Silence


There is a silence where hath been no sound,
There is a silence where no sound may be,
In the cold grave—under the deep, deep sea,
Or in wide desert where no life is found,
Which hath been mute, and still must sleep profound;
No voice is hush’d—no life treads silently,

[Hata Bildir]
