The Sound of Silence


I can hear raining and singing.

I can hear banging and clanging.

I can hear clapping and slapping.

I can hear giggling and drizzling.

 I can hear chattering and clattering.

I can hear the mumbling and crumbling.

I can hear whistling and nibbling.

I can hear hissing and whizzing.

What can’t I hear?

I can’t hear the sound of silence,

A musical note of rest.

The ringing in my ear

The tinnitus can’t disappear.

At all time, it’s here.

How I miss the sound of silence,

that musical note of rest!
