Sonnet- Silence

There are some qualities- some incorporate things,
That have a double life, which thus is made
A type of that twin entity which springs
From matter and light, evinced in solid and shade.

Great poem, good thing to try and interpret
There is a two-fold Silence- sea and shore- Body and soul. One dwells in lonely places, What does this mean? Thanks
Superb piece of writing......
....sso amazing...and incredible ★
One of the best poems ever written! I'd have it projected on to a big screen for it to be in front of me every day of my life....... One dwells in lonely places, some solemn graces, some human memories and tearful lore... - that is where and when we so ofen find ourselves close to God. No one could have said it better! Commend yourself to God...
Edgar Allan Poe is one of the greatest authors of all time. I love his work that I've read so far.
