Where silence seems to rest

Where silence seems to rest

"Beat! beat! drums! - blow! bugles! blow!
Through the windows - through doors - burst like a ruthless force,
Into the solemn church, and scatter the congregation,
Into the school where the scholar is studying;
Leave not the bridegroom quiet - no happiness must he have now with his bride ..."

(W. Whitman in Beat! beat! drums!)
Liège-Chênée (B)
