Something Silent in the Air

There’s something silent in the air
Calling out to you;
It calls to all the animals,
A whisper soft and true.

There’s something silent in the air,
A secret without end;
Something silent in the swan
That says fly South again.

There’s something silent in the air,
As silent as a dream
That stirs inside the salmon
And sends her back up stream.

There’s something silent in the air
Each year when bison roam,
Something silent in the air
That sends us all back home.

I really enjoyed visiting your website. I have a fun website that revolves around the topics of children's books, reading and literature yet is focused on the lovable characters from my children's book series Danny the Dragon. It's always a pleasure to connect up with like-minded individuals and websites that share similar interests, and with that in mind I'd love to connect up. I review other child-related issues and books at my blog as well as have radio interviews posted at: http://DannyTheDragon.com/blog and http://DannyTheDragon.com Also, if we agree, would you be interested in reciprocating links on our sites? The ideas are limitless when it comes to connecting up. Thanks Tina http://TinaTurbin.com
