Wish to begin first post of 2008 with excerpt of poem by an American Poet Edgar Lee Masters , which expresses profound truth of our life


I have known the silence of the stars and of the sea,
And the silence of the city when it pauses,
And the silence of a man and a maid,
And the silence of the sick
When their eyes roam about the room.
And I ask: For the depths,
Of what use is language?
A beast of the field moans a few times
When death takes its young.
And we are voiceless in the presence of realities —
We cannot speak.

Edgar Lee Masters

    “A soundless sea on a voiceless heaven,
    Azure on azure, is mutely gazing.”
    Sri Aurobindo
