Rookie [Everlasting Joy]

Silence

Silence in the morning when muted shadows
Move and melt in the noiseless velvet of undawned day
I trace the distant dim horizon, seeking for sun
Gathering strength from the promise of light

Silence at noon, so rare, rare, when the still heat
Presses down on the prairie world around me
I move through rustling stalks and listen to the wind
Speaking its great empty silence
