Poem: "Pastourelle" by Donald Jeffrey Hayes

Walk this mile in silence —-
Let no sound intrude
Upon the vibrant  stillness
Of this solitude!

Let no thought be spoken
Nor syllable be heard
Lest the spell be broken
By the thunder of a word!

Here, such matchless wonder is 
As might  tear apart —-
Should the lip give tone

To the fullness of the heart…!
