THE SILENT LOVER (i)
by: Sir Walter Raleigh
MORE POEMS BY SIR WALTER RALEIGH
are liken'd best to floods and streams:
- The shallow murmur, but the deep are dumb;
- So, when affection yields discourse, it seems
- The bottom is but shallow whence they come.
- They that are rich in words, in words discover
- That they are poor in that which makes a lover.
