Silent Poem by Robert Francis
Hey! I like Silent Poem a lot. It's set in New England acc. to Francis. Every word is a noun. Silence sits between each word, it is forty words. It simply evokes a rustic farm setting: the critters, the industry, the interior, exterior. Is it a shape poem too? A grid? A gate? You decide. Is title ironical? I think so.

This poem is amazing. I'm 16 and this might be the first published poem ever that I've read and felt like I could have written the same thing. I don't understand what the heck it's supposed to mean though.
