Ode To Silence


My Ode to Silence
Is silence itself.
Only words can say
My thanks to noise
My lips part slowly
As if to speak
But I change my mind
And turn away
My eyes sparkle,
I want to talk.
Yet whenever I do
It ends up wrong.
My hands shake
I mean to gesture
But why move
when words dissappear
In the air
Like smoke from an engine,
Poisoning the world?

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
