Delirious, Sweet

The massive hands, mounting forte

The delicate touch, teasing pianissimo

The untamed passion, a lover’s whispers

Descend on her like great furious waves,

Pound on her like wild tropical torrents

And fill her trembling fear of rapture

In the force of music with pleasure.

For Ludwig Van Beethoven’s 250th Birthday Anniversary

The high stars met in Jupiter’s ascendancy

Of Power, Beauty, Resilience, and Valor

Whirling in passionate, ebullient brilliancy

Of divine celestial fire in terrible wonder

When the Eternal Archer riding on Pegasus

With Magical Arrows of Arts aiming restlessly

Across Elysian Fields, through Mount Olympus

Hunted high and low for the Universal Melody

In a rapt silence of sound wrapped in solitude

Amid the symphony of sounds in magnitude.
