Nature, Faraway Place

Sound of Silence

© Emily A. Capella

What is the sound of silence?

Listen to the Poem

Silence is the endless sound,
That keeps no words abound.
Silence is the wisdom of God,
Like the silence of a heedful nod.
No sound, not even a peep,
No troubled soul to weep.
That is the sound of silence,
Even more abode than science.
No word is thy bold,
Like a soul ready to unfold.
To be soundless is a mystery,
As a night so blistery.
Silence is and always will be,
Like a pure soul frolicking with glee.
So silence is the endless sound,
That keeps no words abound.
