NIGHT SONG AT AMALFI#Forwarded By Cynthia Abegail

Night Song at Amalfi


I asked the heaven of stars
What should I 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
