The Song Of Silence
Poem by John E. Milam
In the mountain's clutching shadows
That crept across the desert floor,
In the soft light of the evening,
By my hogan's lonely door;
I hear the spirits sing in silence
A song of peace - a soothing quiet;
and their nothingness caressed me
With soft fingers of the night.
I heard the song of mankind's peace
Played upon my heartstrings - and
I looked with awe - yea with reverence
Across the star washed desert land.
Silence thundered to the mountains
And then echoed back to me
All the friendliness of loneness
To a lonesome one like me.
