Withdraw, be silent and conceal

The dreams you hold and what you feel.

Within your soul in stillness let

Your inner visions rise and set

Like stars at night in their commute:

Pay homage to them—and be mute.

How can the soul its truth impart?

How can another know your heart

Or comprehend the path you ply?

A thought once uttered is a lie;

Disturb the wells and you pollute:

Drink deeply of them—and be mute.

To live within yourself aspire;

Your soul contains a world entire,

Where hidden mystic thoughts abound;

In noise abroad such thoughts are drowned,

And daylight will their force dilute:

Attend their singing—and be mute!
