“Music,” New Era, Sept. 2001, 28

Music

Music never runs out of itself.

Existing, I believe,

before the creation of Adam,

new melodies,

songs,

pieces

continue to be created.

By now

(thousands and thousands of years later)

you would think

we’d have run out of options—

of melodies,

of music—

but it never ceases to stir new emotions

and uplift the soul

to new heights

through new invention.
