The Tenth Muse


I am the tenth muse, the forgotten muse

My sisters adorn walls and pages of books

While I watch.

I am the tenth muse the unnoticed one

Amidst the singing, poetry, dancing, stars, history

I am waiting.

I am the tenth muse the necessary one

I bring you my sisters' gifts gladly

I am the tenth muse the compelling one

Without me you would never hear their voices

I am the tenth muse the forgotten one

I am Silence.
