I Read Unremembered Poets

I read unremembered poets-
Names little and less known -
Names no longer considered-

Each one was a person and a voice
Each one believed their words should be heard-

I read them and feel myself one of them-

Silence is who they are now
And who we will be.

we continue the lives of those whose words we remember... and leave our words for the coming night... like this poem a lot!
