SILENCE SINGS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: So faint, no ear is sure it hears
Last Line: That joy abound.
Alternate Author Name(s): Moore, T. Sturge
Subject(s): Silence

So faint, no ear is sure it hears,
So faint and far;
So vast that very near appears
My voice, both here and in each star
Unmeasured leagues do bridge between;
Like that which on a face is seen
Where secrets are;

Sweeping, like veils of lofty balm,
Tresses unbound
O'er desert sand, o'er ocean calm,
I am wherever is not sound;
And, goddess of the truthful face,
My beauty doth instil its grace
That joy abound.
