Eternal Silence


Silence
Silence when we are walking,
Silence when we think,
Silence is what fills us all,
With a binding eternal link.

Silence in the little children,
Silence in the adults,
Silence wrapping around us all,
Silence pulsing in the walls.

Silence fills this hollow world,
Silence is the choice we make,
Silence is the death of this all,
Silence is our fate.

    This is a wonderful way of addressing an issue that is ever present but never
    addressed. I was also impressed by the structure you chose to express it.
    Repetition is excellant and warranted to make the point. I was very pleased.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
