Sonnet- Silence

Rating: 3.0
There are some qualities- some incorporate things,
That have a double life, which thus is made
A type of that twin entity which springs
From matter and light, evinced in solid and shade.
There is a two-fold Silence- sea and shore-
Body and soul. One dwells in lonely places,
Newly with grass o'ergrown; some solemn graces,
Some human memories and tearful lore,
Render him terrorless: his name's "No More."
He is the corporate Silence: dread him not!
No power hath he of evil in himself;

One of the best poems ever written! I'd have it projected on to a big screen for it to be in front of me every day of my life....... One dwells in lonely places, some solemn graces, some human memories and tearful lore... - that is where and when we so ofen find ourselves close to God. No one could have said it better! Commend yourself to God...

Edgar Allan Poe is one of the greatest authors of all time. I love his work that I've read so far.
