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.
