The Power of Silence by BrightStar2 The Power of Silence by BrightStar2
“There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is the beating of your own heart. 
So one has to learn the sound of it. Otherwise you'll never understand what it's saying.”  :heart:

:iconpurplebutterflyplz:
:iconyellowroseplz:

“I sit beside the fire and think
Of all that I have seen
Of meadow flowers and butterflies
In summers that have been

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
In autumns that there were
With morning mist and silver sun
And wind upon my hair

I sit beside the fire and think
Of how the world will be
When winter comes without a spring
That I shall ever see

For still there are so many things
That I have never seen
In every wood in every spring
There is a different green

I sit beside the fire and think
Of people long ago
And people that will see a world
That I shall never know

But all the while I sit and think
Of times there were before
I listen for returning feet
And voices at the door”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

What a lovely gift, dear Donna, thank you so very much!  :hug:
It is a beautiful flower, I love it! And I love the title as well and the quote: some quietude and silence are essentials in our life.
The lyrics and the song are so beautiful as well!  :heart:
