Best Poem of Buxton Shippy

A Silent Place

The lights bend
As a single person approaches
The sparsely furnished hallway
As if they felt him.

The corridors are filled
With a deafening silence,
Before they knelt to pray.
And the suspended linens
Sway with a gentle wind
As the bell tells time
With its ceremonial ringing.

A brother, with a food cart,
Moved from cell to cell
And slip the daily rations
Through the windows
Set in the paneled doors.

They are not seen.
They are not heard.
They are situated
In a silent place.

Read the full of A Silent Place

Admonition

Sons and daughters
Respect authority
In this World System
You need clarity
It can help, it can hurt
Have to know the laws
That govern earth
Be contented with a little
Than much behind bars
