do you hear it?
can you feel the soft vibrations
like the rhythmic motion of the tides
the fine grains of sand so perfectly spread along the shore
the graceful touch of the sunlight against your face
close your eyes Mary
feel the warmth
feel the serenity
the cello breathes
it whispers words too beautiful
too beautiful to be expressed in human language
yes, that’s it,
continue to play,
express the essence of music, dear child
