Silence came and silence went,

She never stays too long.

I thought I hear her in the parlor,

but, now I hear a bird’s song.

.

Silence was in my den,

She had been there a while.

She left me when the children came,

And brought with them a smile.

.

Silence came and silence went,

She never stays too long.

I heard her in the woods out back,

But, now I fear she is gone.

.

Silence reigns absolute,

at midnight in the home.

The pets are still, the children gone,

my heart filled with hope.

.

Silence came and silence went,

She never stays too long.

I thought I heard her in the meadow,

then I heard the bees’ drone.

.

Golden sunlight dances for her,

She might stay for that.

Water tinkles in its bed,

Chasing away her raft.

.

Silence came and silence went,

She never stays too long.

She decides when I write,

She will never be wrong.

.
