SILENT INTERLUDEBy: Darrelyn Tutt
I have a very quiet friend,Her name is solitude;She fills the busy world of talk,With silent interlude.
She speaks a tranquil language true,Yet never fills the air,With simple talk or idle chat,And yet I know she’s there.
For solitude communicates,A message of her own;She beckons and invites me,“Come away and come alone.”
In conduct so becoming,And an invitation free;She offers timely friendship,And she wisely counsels me.
I have a very quiet friend,Her name is solitude;No other friend more faithful been,Than silent interlude.------"Loneliness expresses the pain of being alone and solitude expresses the glory of being alone."-Paul Tillich
