Rhyme Scheme: ABCB DEFE GHIJ KLML NOLO PQMR

I listen to the stillness of youA
My dear among it allB
I feel your silence touch my words as I talkC
And take them in thrallB
-
My words fly off a forgeD
The length of a sparkE
I see the night sky easily sip themF
Up in the darkE
-
The lark sings loud and gladG
Yet I am not lothH
That silence should take the song and the birdI
And lose them bothJ
-
A train goes roaring southK
The steam flag flyingL
I see the stealthy shadow of silenceM
Alongside goingL
-
And off the forge of the worldN
Whirling in the draught of lifeO
Go sparks of myriad people fillingL
The night with strifeO
-
Yet they never change the darknessP
Or blench it with noiseQ
Alone on the perfect silenceM
The stars are buoysR
