[underlined]SILENT SONG[/underlined]

Song lies asleep in me,
But for a little while,
Dulled is the vaunted smile,
Till freedom win me.

Though it lies sleeping,
Yet, it will wake again,
Fled will be all its pain,
Hushed its soft weeping.

Thy love will fire it,
It will rise singing,
Break these false temporal bars,
Fly to the gloried stars,
One, with love, winging.
H.Y. 4 Feb 44,
Tuddenham.
