Orpheus (standard:poetry, 83 words)

Silence is the most beautiful note.

“The last book 

will contain nothing 

but blank pages.” 


Pale Orpheus, 

where is your lyre? 

Why aren't you singing? 

What has happened 

to stop the flow 

of your beautiful words? 


Ah, such words, such music. 

A tongue of gold, 

and, yet, now silent. 




The universe ends 

on the most beautiful note; 

and that note is silence. 


And words, 

no matter how beautifully sung, 

become dust in the mouths 

of singers. 


Time has turned us to stone.
