A Song of the Silent Souls

by Amos Russel Wells

Some can talk, sagacious, tender,
Strong discourse and rare;
Others fill the room with splendor
Just by being there.

Some can drive the world to duty
By a brandished knife
Others by the silent beauty
Of a loving life

Some are praised to highest heaven
Through a brilliant hour;
Others as a quiet leaven
Wield eternal power.

Fine are speech and valiant action
Where the triumph rolls;
But—the endless satisfaction
Of the silent souls!
