A POEM ABOUT EMOTIONS TRYING TO BE WORDS

KRONOS QUARTET | THE BEATITUDES (VLADIMIR MARTYNOV)

They lived in the impossible distance,
Of meeting at each other’s hands,
So they met in a musical poem,
Between two written notes on a music sheet,
Where both hearts could beat,
As only the hearts that love music can
And feed themselves on the poetic side of life can rest,
The only side worth living for.
