I listen to silence in search of my verses,

In search of a line that surprises, caresses,

In search of a rhyme that reveals something new,

Answers a questions or offers a clue.

And soon from nowhere the lines do appear,

And brain can hear! The brain can hear

The voice of silenc e and the universe

That prompts their secrets fit for a verse.

² Activity 4. Listen to the poem and repeat it after the speaker.


The Sleeping Bag

On the outside grows the fur side, on the inside

grows the skin side;

So the fur side is the outside, and the skin side

is the inside.

As the skin side is the inside, and the fur side

is the outside;

One "side" likes the skin side inside, and the

fur side on the outside.

Others like the skin side outside, and the fur side

on the inside;

As the skin side is the hard side, and the fur side

is the soft side.

If you turn the skin side outside, thinking you

will side with that "side"

Then the soft side, fur side's inside, which some

argue is the wrong side.

If you turn the fur side outside, as you say it

grows on that side;

Then your outsiders next the skin side, which

for comfort's not the right side;

For the skin side is the cold side, and your

Out sideТs not your warm side;

And two cold sides coming side by side are not

right sides one УsideФ decides,

If you decide to side with that УsideФ, turn

the outside, fur side, inside;

Then the hard side, cold side, skin side s, beyond

all question, inside outside.

Herbert George Ponting
