we hail you with joy


your silence
has sounded
louder
than the jabber
of politics
and the clang
of military power;

out of deep darkness
your little lamp has
shone
across the planet;
your stillness
has moved the world.



Taken from the oration given in honour of Aung San Suu Kyi when she received an honorary doctorate in Oxford, 20 June 2012. Submitted by Ailsa Holland.
