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 John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
