Silence
 
God’s poet is silence! His song is unspoken,
  And yet so profound, so loud, and so far,
It fills you, it thrills you with measures unbroken,
  And as soft, and as fair, and as far as a star.
        Joaquin Miller.—Isles of the Amazons, Stanza 46, Part I.

        Let me silent be,
For silence is the speech of love,
The music of the spheres above.
        Stoddard.—The Speech of Love.
