Finalist in the 'Dream Big 2013' competition

Silently leaves turn green to fawn,
Silently from darkness emerges dawn,
Silently a stone-cold statue stands,
Silently an elegant bird swoops then lands.
Silently May changes to June,
Silently out of view leaves the full moon,
Silently a smile takes place on a face,
Silently the dead rest with grace.
