The Sound Of Peace

Rating: 5.0

The sound of peace, so sweet,
Is not silence.
The sound of peace
Is words of comfort
Spoken in low tones.
The sound of peace
Is leaves gently swirled
On a soft breeze.
The sound of peace
Is the chirp of the cardinal
Calling to its mate at twilight.
The sound of peace
Is a mother's lullaby
To soothe a fretful child.
The sound of peace
Is a kitten's purr
As it begins to nap.
The sound of peace
Is a crackling fire
On a cold winter's night.
The sound of peace is pleasantly quiet,
But is not silent.

I agree, except that I find that silence is most peaceful. No radio, no TV.

Dr. Tony, thank you so much for your sweet and lovely comment! I am touched by what you wrote! Sorry about your mother; she was so very young. There is an old saying that only the good die young.
