Booms of Silence


The din of silence
Crashes into my
ears, shadows of despair
Crowd into my
heart; hands paralysed
By the weight of
Distance, voice drowned
By the rattle of
Quiet, I remain
Praying and pleading
To a stone
At rest, pelting
Booms of silence...

    The din of silence silence can be construed to be the same as emptiness
    Crashes into my ears crashes-a full blown assult.Ears-one of the five senses, heaing

    Shadows of despair shadows-lingering doubts.Despair-failings, unaccomplished fulfillment
    Crowd into Heart crowd-into an empty heart.The poet (man) is the heart, the poem
    (life) the heartbeat.

    Hands paralyzed tied
    By the weight of weight-(load) of distance.Distance between man and God
    Distance proof of Gods existance.Take the load off God and put the load on me

    Voice drowned life silenced
    By the rattle of death's rattle....end of existance?
    Quiet

    I remain I am left with
    praying and pleading searching, seeking

    To a stone at rest statue of God....idea of eternity
    Pelting booms of for what? In return for silence
    Silence where is my answer

    Profound poem! Excellent! (Report) Reply

poet William Wordsworth

I

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
