Silence Speaks
by Jeff Cagle

What is poetry but
the romance of words?

What are words --
never heard?

What do they say
to know ones ears --
page through the emptiness
of the years.

The songs unsung - sing to none.
Do you hear what they say?
The words belong - but lack just one.
Anyone hear what I say?

What do they say,
To know ones ears.
Hear the emptiness,
of all the tears.

What is poetry but
the romance of words
What are words --
never heard?
