Herds Of Silence


Written By John P. (Rick) Boyle

As the weeping willow bows
To soften the shadows of the deep…
‘Neath the hickory and their brows
Mine eyes obey ~ My time to weep…

And it is through this special time..
That my breath can not hold on…
To the mother river of rhyme ~
And her thoughts she banks upon…

Sadness is best ~ Without words..
‘Neath the weeping willow tree….
Whilst the birds of demons flock the herds..
~ The herds of silence… Beneath me

Now this is poetry. Taking words to the forge…bending and shaping them until they shine with beauty. What more can be said?
