Poetry: Listen- For the Night is Silent by Neil Daswani

1 min read

Neil Daswani captures the silence of the Christmas Night in his latest poem.

Christmas night

 … all was calm

… all was bright 

through the honest hours

watchers kneeling on white glisten

knew the evanescent light  

the rhythm of psalm and hymn 

which sought to give them a sign 

above the rustle, bustle, scratch 

and nestle of lambs knowledge of the what, why and where

if they had only listened 

for the silence of the letters 

… from all the words on high
