The Voiceless Silence

This song is by Katharine Blake and appears on the album Midnight Flower (2007).

Once in the world's first prime
When nothing lived or stirred
Nothing but newborn time
Nor was there ever a bird

The silence spoke to a star
But I do not dare repeat
What it said to its love afar
It was too sweet too sweet

But there in the faire world's youth
Ere sorrow had drawn breath
When nothing was known but truth
Nor was there even death

The star to silence was wed
And the sun was priest that day
And they made their bridal bed
High in the milky way

For the great white star had heard
Her silent love's speech
It needed no passionate word
To pledge them each to each

Lady fair and far
Hear, oh, hear and apply
Thou beautiful star
The voiceless silence
