Silence





There is a silence where hath been no sound,

There is a silence where no sound may be,

In the cold grave—under the deep, deep sea,

Or in wide desert where no life is found,

Which hath been mute, and still must sleep profound;

No voice is hush’d—no life treads silently,

But clouds and cloudy shadows wander free,

That never spoke, over the idle ground:

But in green ruins, in the desolate walls

Of antique palaces, where Man hath been,

Though the dun fox or wild hyćna calls,

And owls, that flit continually between,

Shriek to the echo, and the low winds moan—

There the true Silence is, self-conscious and alone.

.: :.

Silence by Thomas Hood is a Petrarchan sonnet. The octave (first eight lines) acknowledge scientific truth that silence is absence of sound - as in various places: deserts, outer space etc. The volta (turn) is the word \'But\' which introduces the sestet in which the poet says, in effect, \'but I, as a poet and human being, know a deeper silence than that, which is the absence of the people who used to live here, and that is a poetic truth, more profound than scientific.\'
