Life is a melody,
at times with music so soft and low,
as if a gentle whisper inaudible,
heard only by the soul.
That’s melody perfect,
melody the sweetest
melody at its prime;
an other times it’s orchestra in high tones,
like a dance in high ecstasy;
at times the music is shrill,
Life’s musical tones are varied and manifold,
whisper, soft, low, music bass, shrill or too high and bold.
Give me, O life, thy sweetest
harmonies of youth, love and beauty;
and of compassion for the poor and the deprived;
and of friendship, goodwill and amity,
and of peace and fraternity.
i really need them
