Night Song at Amalfi

I asked the heaven of stars
  What I should give my love—
It answered me with silence,
  Silence above.
  
I asked the darkened sea          
  Down where the fishes go—
It answered me with silence,
  Silence below.
  
Oh, I could give him weeping,
  Or I could give him song—   
But how can I give silence
  My whole life long?


Sara Teasdale, Night Song at Amalfi

Thank you

Thank You... by jennyleigh:: Liek thanks you :: by Liek
Thank you so much to new watchers, to everyone for all your favourites, for your continued interest, and quite simply for your general tolerance.

I am not always able to reply to every comment (though I do try), and I have had to choose not to thank everyone individually for favourites and watches (but again, I try to acknowledge the latter as much as possible), for which I do beg your pardon. Please be assured, however, that I appreciate them very much.

Silence is not the answer; it is the container for the answer.

Excellent choice of poem. 8-)

Indeed. The sad truth is that it is often the only thing some of us are obliged to offer.

But how can I give silence
My whole life long?

Ah , but that warm hug , tender caress and knowing look need not words or song . Give your dear one your art and heart and some times less really is more .

I would give those things and more in a heartbeat. If only it were possible to do so.

Oh sigh , do they not know of your love or are they far away ? I need not know . But I will say I traveled 1,300 miles for my loved one and 33 years later we're still together

That's beautiful...

I love where it is impossible. Where it can never be returned.

A very lovely poem - the cynic in me is chiming in with the thought that perhaps the poet is seeking her answers in the wrong places, however. Were she to ask the dawn and the birds, perhaps they would tell her to give sunshine and song.

There are sunshiny poems that are just as sad... There is one in particular I can think of, but it isn't quite the time for it, yet. ;)
