Silence - Poem by Don Pengilly

The birds they sing so sweetly
Beneath the canopy
Of trees arranged so neatly
In the shadows you can see

The breeze is set from north east
As clouds go swiftly past
Across the tips of trees
The birds their wings so fast

The road beneath the trees
Winds silently through glade
Until the sound of traffic
Steal the silence that was made

The jets from nearby airfield
On high go streaming past
Yet again to steal the silence
And make such contrast

To woods and birds there singing
Make life more full and fair
With their sounds breaking silence
Without which I could not bare

Other sounds seem so trivial
When nature makes it’s call
Their sounds so inspirational
As they sing and give their all
