Silent Noon


Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass -

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms

Neath billowing skies that scatter and amass.

All round our nest, far as the eye can pass,

Are golden kingcup-fields with silver edge

Where the cow-parsley skirts the hawthorn-hedge.

Tis visible silence, still as the hour-glass.



Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragonfly

Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky:

So this winged hour is dropt to us from above.

Oh! We clasp our hearts, for deathless dower,

This close-companioned inarticulate hour

When twofold silence was the song of love.


~Dante Gabriel Rossetti
