Silence

 

When all’s
said
and undone

 
and pall
lifts not
with the
morning sun

 
when the
motley race
is run

 
And shills
who ran not
have won

 
*

 
When sordid
tales
are spun

 
and you
and blight
are one

 
then must
spirit
retreat

 
yield up
her lofty
seat

 
and cringing
take
the heat

 
*

 
For all
hearts break
in meekness

 
all strength
wanes
in weakness

 
all peace
rends
in violence

 
and all
speech brakes
in silence

 
*

 
For all
the
hot air

 
the spirit
lies
bare

 

and all speech
cedes
to silence
