Listening to the Silence

Have you noticed how softly A field sparrow sings, Scarcely disturbing The silence? Or take A brook: at times it will make No noise at all, Then venture several small Ripples of sound When it seems no one is around. I have yet to hear A garter snake as it glides Quickly beyond fear. A wild rose sheds Its frail pink petals; yet none Is the wiser, having heard No sign, not even one.
