Silence Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 0

When I was cub reporter I

Would interview the Great,

And sometimes they would make reply,

And sometimes hesitate;

But often they would sharply say,

With bushy eyebrows bent:

"Young man, your answer for to-day

        Is - No Comment."

Nigh sixty years have called the tune,

And silver is my pate;

No longer do I importune

Important men of state;

But time has made me wise, and so

When button-holed I shake

My head and say: "To-day, I've no

        Comment to make."

Oh, silence is a mighty shield,

Verbosity is vain;

let others wordy warfare wield,

From arguments abstain;

When faced with dialectic foes

Just shrug and turn away:

Be sure your wisest words are those

        You do not say.

Yea, Silence is a gleaming sword

Whose wounds are hard to heal;

Its quiet stuns the spoken word

More than a thunder peal;

Against it there is no defense,

For like the grave-yard sod

Its hush is Heaven's eloquence,

        The VOICE OF GOD.
