Let the world talk

Nog eentje van Bart:

Don't sing
or sigh
for just a little while.

Let the world talk,
the forest whisper,
the early morning birds sing.

Step back,
stand still
just for a little while,

as at times,
one needs to listen
to the whisper,

an early morning song,
through the trees
from a bird,

The murmur
from the water
