Amanda says so because both silence and freedom have been snatched her mother. Her mother keeps shouting at her all the time and also does not leave her free. So, Amanda desires freedom and silence. This is why she calls silence gold and freedom sweet.
Read summary of this poem.
According to Amanda, the silence and freedom in her life have been snatched by her mother. She assumes herself to be a mermaid in the lonely emerald sea and frees like an orphan child but her mother led her to live Rapunzel’s life as she keeps scolding, shouting at her, and distracting her imagination.
