67. Silence Sings
 
SO faint, no ear is sure it hears, 
So faint and far; 
So vast that very near appears 
My voice, both here and in each star 
Unmeasured leagues do bridge between;         5
Like that which on a face is seen 
Where secrets are; 
Sweeping, like veils of lofty balm, 
Tresses unbound 
O'er desert sand, o'er ocean calm,  10
I am wherever is not sound; 
And, goddess of the truthful face, 
My beauty doth instil its grace 
That joy abound.
