All over the universe

Structures of miraculous organization

Are generated all the time:

Galaxies, suns, planets, ecosystems,

Animals, human brains, civilizations:

And then, most incredible and immaculate of all.

As if trumping a million times over

All those astonishing snowflakes and patterned flames

Of mystery. emerges the music:

Of Mozart.
