The Silence Spoke

Dane Gordon


If this book has a theme it is
that it reflects concerns
I have had throughout my
life. All the poems were written
since my 90th birthday.



From the book:


Our Love


It’s an odd thought,
but can love live beyond
those who love?

Our love is so special
I don’t want it to
vanish when we die.
Perhaps there will be echoes,
distant voices telling
the story of our love
to future generations
Love should be immortal
not tied to our frail
existence, free to shine
forever, like the morning
star or, perhaps, the star
of Bethlehem.


One Step


Celtic spirituality believes
in places and in happenings where the
boundary between heaven
and earth is thin, where
we can almost touch the
heavenly realm.

An icon is often
used as an example.
A new-born in its mother’s
arms is another,
a flower whose loveliness
is more than ordinary,
music which transports beyond
listening, someone who,
despite all reasons
not to be, is there.

In all of these
the heavenly realm
is close to our
every day.

One step it seems
is all we need.
But mortal legs are
seldom strong enough
to take us there.
