Reticence

Reticence

 The reticent volcano keeps
His never slumbering plan;
Confided are his projects pink
To no precarious man.
 If nature will not tell the tale
Jehovah told to her,
Can human nature not survive
Without a listener?
 Admonished by her buckled lips
Let every babbler be.
The only secret people keep
Is Immortality.
