Poem (in honor of National Poetry Month): I Love to Sit in Silence

I love to sit in silence

Beneath the shady trees

And listen to the song of birds

And to the buzz of bees.
I love to sit in silence
And watch the Clouds roll by
Then read a book or sing a song
And hear the wild bird cry.
I love to sit in silence
When the day is almost done
And see behind the distant hill
The paint glow of the sun.
I love to sit in silence
In the evening twilight
And listen to the whippor-will
Singing with all its might.
I love to sit in silence
Beneath the Starry sky

And pray to all in earnest

To live in silence all the while.

    Lovely poem, Denise. Today is “Poem in Your Pocket Day” and I have two that I have been carrying in my pockets this week.

    Bises,
