Hush

How do you silence a longing heart

If all its longings are as thy sky above—

Not bound by earth but wrapped in gray;

So wide; so endlessly arrayed?

 

Ask a widow whose love’s departed.

Ask ma and pa whose child’s turned away.

Ask the weary, homeless stranger.

Ask the man who seeks forever.

 

Silence. Longing. Heart.
