Reading Haylee’s “It’s oh so quiet”, reblogged below, reminded me of something I wrote in 2013 – here it is!



Quiet is good

quiet is great

can you relate?




Silence is golden

silence is grand





Lend me your ear

Come and draw near

Can you not hear?


Noise can be good in the right sort of way

Especially in children when they’re out at play

In music, in drama, to make a good riot

but please pause awhile and be very quiet

Thanks for the reminder:  Silence is golden
