To Agnes Walker
Notes like ﬁre in livid light
Notes that tread in ecstasy
With tender repetition, ﬂying into spheres
Celestial, tainted with eternal beauty
And sadness ultimate to rainbow drops
Of pain: flames of snowlike softness
Touch with unreality of immortal dream.
O wild flower, wild ecstatic music!
Love eternal, this is beauty!
O note eternal, ﬂowering thus,
Liquid light, superb eternity!
Sunshine eternal, absolute truth!
Wonderful craziness! Such painful beauty
Beyond understanding is your touching
Crystal lights of waterfall light.
Your passion overwhelming
Rippling like dream
Your notes are miraculous.
Magical, elusive, inconceivable beauty -
Notes tripped off like bells of air
And spirit, invisible source
Of music, eternity, ecstatic joy
And love! Music divine like love in spiritual
Honey rolling in scales of tumbling wonder!
Waterfalls of holiness, halos of sound
Trickling like ﬂowers of full loveliness.
Notes from heavenly paradise
Modulations and rippling dissonances
From sacred water and fantastic beauty
Of snowdrops blooddrops tears and repeating
Tenderness of nature in the imagination!
Drenching ﬁredrops saturating kindness
ln blissful music!
l will drown in my burning tears.
Mysterious unfolding of dream
Like light in eternal enantiodromia
Of tragic isolation agony
lnto glorious joy and inﬁnite ecstasy
The absolute in wonder and convulsive
Love in miracle drenching dripping dream
of the stars
Essence of truth reality transformed
Through art´s miraculous magical transcendence
