Nature’s music is its eternal language, scripted in the calmness of the mind.
AN ODE TO MUSIC


Music, the sound of the soul:
The whisper of the winds,
Chirping of the gliding birds,
The rustle of the waves;

Splatter of the raindrops and
The groaning of the clouds,
Murmur of petulant leaves,
The humming of the bee.

Lilting melody of heart
That is crying with pain,
Mating call of the whale and
The wail of the banshee;

Offering of divine hymns,
The call of the cuckoo,
Lullaby of the mother,
Laughter of the infant.

All this is Nature talking
The language of music,
The only language of the
World that is eternal.
