In the silence

To creep in by candle-light,
When all the world is fast asleep,
Out of the cold winds, out of the night,
Where the nettles wave and the rains weep!...
And light the candle and look round
The old familiar room;
To see the old books upon the wall
And lovingly take one down again...
And, or ever we go, we lift and kiss
Some idle thing that your hands may touch,
Some paper or book that your hands let fall...
To kiss and to cherish it, moaning our pain,
Ere we creep to the silence again.
~Alfred Noyes, "Ghosts"

In culture after culture, people believe that the soul lives on after death, that rituals can change the physical world and divine the truth, and that illness and misfortune are caused and alleviated by spirits, ghosts, saints ... and gods.

  1. This piece is beautifully evocative of spirits and such, Karla, and I love the accompanying prose. BRAVO!

  2. Beautifully wicked Karla and wonderful words too.

  3. Assombração, com certo senso de humor, gostei! Belo também o poema sobre a "vida" dos fantasmas. Obrigada pelo carinho, Karla. Me separei no começo do ano e ainda tenho meus altos e baixos. Além disso, segundo uma amiga, estou tendo achaques menopáusicos. Melhorando...

  4. An eerie but most beautiful piece of art, Karla. The poem and the quote are perfect. You put English speakers to shame because you have such superb knowledge about the language and its literature.
