SOLITUDE



SOLITUDE
By: 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 so faithful been,
As silent interlude.
