Quiet

Wilfrid Wilson Gibson 1878 (Hexham) – 1962

Only the footprints of the partridge run
  Over the billowy drifts on the mountain-side;
  And now on level wings the brown birds glide
  Following the snowy curves, and in the sun
  Bright birds of gold above the stainless white
  They move, and as the pale blue shadows move,
  With them my heart glides on in golden flight
  Over the hills of quiet to my love.

  Storm-shaken, racked with terror through the long
  Tempestuous night, in the quiet blue of morn
  Love drinks the crystal airs, and peace newborn
  Within his troubled heart, on wings aglow
  Soars into rapture, as from the quiet snow
  The golden birds; and out of silence, song.
