Hello Mooku, saw this poem about music, very interesting.
Post here to share with you.
Read it a few times and you will see the beauty of it.
On the dusty earth-drum
Beats the falling rain;
Now a whispered murmur,
Now a louder strain.
Slender, silvery drumsticks,
On an ancient drum,
Beat the mellow music
Bidding life to come.
Chords of earth awakened,
Notes of greening spring,
Rise and fall triumphant
Over every thing.
Slender, silvery drumsticks
Beat the long tattoo –
God, the Great Musician,
Calling life anew.
(1918.) by Joseph Seamon Cotter, Jr.
And then imagine hearing masculine choral voices amidst the rain...Originally posted by DeadPoet:Glad that you like it, the more I read this poem the more I love it.
It is like a chant with a strong sense of rhythm.
I can imagine God calling out ‘Awake! Awake!’ And all living things obey and come to life.
Nature, Music and Religion perfectly fit into one poem.
I like the advertisements boosting tourism for Australia.. especially the one about the colors and all... I think it's beautiful.Originally posted by DeadPoet:Next time if I find any nice poems about music I post here okay?
It in turn reminds me of "What a Wonderful World"... I think Louis Armstrong sang it wonderfully... he sounded so Santa Clausy, that very heartwarming voice... like, "ho ho ho!".Originally posted by DeadPoet:Yeah, that song also very nice.
I wonder what song is that? Maybe it is from a poem?
