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 twighlight
And listen to the whippoorwill 
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.

  2. Beautiful! And I swear it was written for me. I love silence & solitude when I'm outdoors enjoying nature. The deer image is wonderful too.

  4. What an insightful poem from someone who took no credit. It is true that the noises and muddle of the world take us away from its grave majesty, evident only when we sit still in silence.
