The Sound of Silence

Posted on Mar 23, 2020


North Berwick Beach by Darren Greenidge –

A murmur of Starlings flies on high
Where not a plane seen in the skies

And boats no longer sail the seas
Dolphins, seals, can finally breathe

Noise that shook and rumbled the land
No longer has its devilish hand

And people no longer pollute or corrupt
As the world stops abrupt

How long I wonder will it last
Before we return to our chaotic past

And destroy all we have achieved
The Earth needs more than a short reprieve

Oh for the sound of silence
To help us think away our reliance
