Harmony and Silence
By Amber Morgan
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 1999 Category: Bell Benton Memorial Poetry Award

Harmony is soft
Like the fur of a baby bunny
Nesting in the grass.
Melodic like a robin's song
Drifting among the trees.
Gentle as a newborn lamb
Nudging her mother.
Sweet as a plump cherry
Whose juices run down my throat.
Fresh like ripened strawberries
Under the July sun.


Silence is rough,
A frayed rope
Dangling from rafters,
Eerie moaning
Overtaking joy.
A field of weeds
Crowding out pansies.
Dark silence
Surrounding souls.
