I read this poem in high school. I was on the forensics team and read this
in the poetry division. I won many awards for my presentation of
Silence...Now, at 47, I can still recite it in the same prose as I did back
then. It still has meaning in my life..and will always be a favorite.

I first read this poem years ago in an English Lit. textbook. I remembered
the 1st stanza, but could not for the life of me remember who wrote it.
It's a beautiful poem, full of meaning and I'm glad that I found it again.

I believe it was in 1965 I won an award for recital of this lovely poem.
People of nearly all ages can relate to parts of this poem at some time in
their lives. Having lived the great range of life, I understand the
importance of reflecting on our experiences and learning from others as
well. This poem was not my guide, nothing takes the place of the Bible,
and the gods do not understand one another without speach,for there is only
one God. Edgar Lee Masters died in 1950, the year I was born, if the dead
could speak he might revise "Silence" to say there is only one God.
Thank You, Diane

the poem silence is one of a kind. it shows and tells different ideas from
our mind. it reminds us that true silence is found when there is peace and

" eye is an open door to one's soul and inner self. "

This poem entitled "Silence" is one of the best poem I've ever read. In
this poem I learned that in silence we can show our love, sadness,
happiness, or any emotions that we can feel inside. Though we don't usually
say what's inside our minds and hearts, the only one who can see the true
feelings in our naked eye are the ones who love us like our friends and
So, eventhough you try to hide something there will always be one who can
read your secrets....through your eye.
