Silent Voice - Poem by DEEPAK KUMAR PATTANAYAK

Silent voice
- - - - - - - -
Standing firm
You live to give
To enlighten us you strive
You sweat to us brighten
Growing toward the sky
You seem touching the heaven
You love playing hide and seek
Sometimes with full moon
Sometimes with crescent moon
And new moon to you not an alien
For beneath your silhouette cool
You give shelter to many a soul
With divine song you are always filled
For the feathered friends
Provide free melody of every kind
And within your hermitage
Sunlight dreams many a dream
There you stand, pride of the land
No footsteps rustle around
Only fallen leaves of yours
Breathe your psalm
Low-voiced and calm
You are as lovely as a poem
And all day look at God
Utter in silent voice with leafy arms
A prayer for the mankind
Your lips move
But your voice is never heard

Topic(s) of this poem: tree

    Through silent voice we call him and through his silent voice he transfer his grace and teaches many more things. He provides free melody of every kind and only fallen leaves understand the life and bout God's love for creatures. Very excellent writing shared on the desk. (Report)Reply
