Silence

When I was at college, there was someone in the year above me who wrote poems. Many of his poems still toss around in my head. I have no idea if he ever published them, or even what his full name was, but I thought I would share one with you.

Silence

A thousand stuttering words
Could never match
The eloquence
of a silence
and the library of context
in which it is heard

.

Hobbit whispers... "It's quite hard to comment on a topic about silence..." Shhh! Oops. Clearly it's quite hard for a hobbit to keep quiet too.

Thank you for sharing that Wren - that is a beautiful poem.

It sounds like a haiku or something similar.
