The Other Side of Silence
Year written: 1913
From 'The Other Side of Silence.'
Though loud the chant of human fate
From earth to heaven be flung,
The other side of silence wait
A myriad songs unsung:
Of dying dreams and living dread,
Of good that seems in vain,
Of memory mourning for its dead,
And love that veils its pain;
With all those happier hidden things
Of seventy years or seven,
From childhood's voiceless visionings,
To Age's hopes of heaven.
Life, of thy gifts be this my choice:
That, humbly drawing near,
Waiting to catch the still small voice,
I win the heart to hear.
