Music speaks in every tongue.
To everyone.
Under the sun.
Its words mighty and crisp.
The best part being ...
... there's never a lisp ...

Short, sweet and with a smile and much truth in your words. Music can reach the parts that words can't reach. Can certainly stir a whole range of emotions. One of my favourite classical pieces is A Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams. When that plays I become the lark. I am lost in the thermals :)

Knowing (& loving) your tendency to go "on & on" in a poem is one reason I feel startled & delighted to see you writing shorter poems lately. This might be the culmination of your short poem odyssey. Here you sum it up beautifully & also you pick a point that's indisputable. Music gets my motor running first thing in the morning & it also infuses me with something indescribable, making me crave to do something creative (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
