The Joy of Music

And the night shall be filled with music,
And the cares that infest the day
Shall fold their tents like the Arabs
And as silently steal away.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Day Is Done



There's music in the sighing of a reed;
There's music in the gushing of a rill;
There's music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.

Lord Byron
Thank you girls for your music quotes and images.

A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence.

~Leopold Stokowski

EVERYTHING IS MUSIC ( Rumi)


Don't worry about saving these songs!
And if one of our instruments breaks,
It doesn't matter.

We have fallen into the place
where everything is music.
The strumming and the flute notes
rise into the atmosphere,
and even if the whole world's harp
should burn up, there will still be
hidden instruments playing.

So the candle flickers and goes out.
We have a piece of flint, and a spark.

This singing art is sea foam.
The graceful movements come from a pearl
somewhere on the ocean floor.

Poems reach up like spindrift and the edge
Of driftwood along the beach, wanting!

They derive
From a slow and powerful root
That we can't see.

Stop the words now.
Open the window in the center of your chest,
And let the spirits fly in and out.

(translation by Coleman Barks)
Thank you for resounding such a harmonious topic dearestestestest Inda!

You are ...


You are my Gregorian chant
when the trees are our cathedral.
You are my Om sound,
when we perform
our very own cosmic dance.
Occasionally, you are my Blues,
when we cross the valleys
of universal sadness.

Mostly, you are my unique
tune of love that stirs my
every fiber to move
through life with grace.
You are my string of existence
that holds every sound
ever emitted in the process
of creation.

You are the divine voice
that resonates within my soul,
hence this irresistible desire
to get under your skin,
to dive into the essence of you.

You are the buzzing
of our Spring meadow
where we inhale
the pure breeze of renovation
that allows us to live in love
and to ascend upon
planes of peace and healing
of whatever dissonance
crept imperceptibly
into our minds.

Now come and sing with me,
over and over again,
our unique tune of harmony.
Then press your lips on mine
and listen to the echoes
roaming through infinity.

Have the heart of a gypsy, and the dedication of a soldier -Beethoven in Beethoven Lives Upstairs

“Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.”

Japanese saying



Love,
yoko
I know not how thou singest, my master! I ever listen in silent amazement.
The light of thy music illuminates the world. The life breath of thy music runs from sky to sky. The holy stream of thy music breaks through all stony obstacles and rushes on.
My heart longs to join in thy song, but vainly struggles for a voice. I would speak, but speech breaks not into song, and I cry out baffled. Ah, thou hast made my heart captive in the endless meshes of thy music, my master!

~Rabindranath Tagore
