Subject(s): Sonnet (As Literary Form); Symphonies; Concerts


Till now I've spent my days exploring books,
And searching in the minds of men for things
Unknown to me; or followed night with wings
That have been quickened by delight; found brooks
Whose quiet flow gave peace, but wisdom, no;
And I've known greater love than most men should;
Seen life: Some bad, though most of it was good;
And I've had happiness with little woe.
But now I've heard Tschaikovsky's symphony;
Watched how the old conductor's baton swayed
Ecstatically, and dealt out sorrow there;
Glimpsed one bright flash of all life's meant to be,
And gone, with face uplifted, unafraid,
Into the night, breathed deeply of the air.
