Analysis and comments on The Voiceless by Oliver Wendell Holmes

Comment 1 of 1, added on May 23rd, 2008 at 10:19 PM.

This is one of the saddest poems, I had to memorize it
in Junior High and it stayed with me; People need to sing, speak out and
make a sound. Alas for those that
never sing, but die with all their music in them.
Very well put. Rachel
