They whisper softly, long and deep
In a vale where only vagaries sleep
Where shrieks and echoes from the birds
Can run deplete all useless words
While they promise onwards, long and deep.
In gentle touches, the world renowned
They utter not the slightest sound
Yet every word rings twice as clear
Than screamed behests to wakeful ear
A forgotten language, the world renowned.
When the silence is parted, an unspoken love
Bedights the quick of the silent alcove
Their hands still clasp in the courted noir
In a world of paltry silence before
And whisper softly, an unspoken love.
