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
