SILENT SINGER  1993.03Song of the Silent Singer

Round and round the notes revolve,
But make no sounds, no chords resolve,
Yet those who listen with their eyes
Will hear songs of multi-colored melodies,
Which on the quavering air a moment linger...
What do they tell us then: To hope? To fear?
O gentle traveler, please lend both eye and ear
To the songs without sound of the Silent Singer...

-from a collection of poems entitled SONGS WITHOUT SOUNDS
