A Dreamworld Chimera

And for my sweet meditation-  I am listening to Vilvaldi,
the four seasons concerto, wild and quite dreamy;
and I am soon lost in a daydream of flowing creeks,
     singing birds, whimsy and fantasy illusion.
     A mosaic, a tapestry, a fresco,
     and I am walking this entangled maze; 
     a labyrinth of green lush vinery,
                                the moon my illumination.
        A spirit guardian leads,
           me to a garden;
a place of posy, wild flowers, a paradise, a dreamland,
and a little cherub angel child welcomes me to rest.
It is like Heaven here in this Shangri-La land,
                                yet my innermost heart weeps;
        midnight ink black tears,
           for I know this child.
Oh, horrible the memories that wrap me in darkness now,
it is my sister love, lost to death in the web of time;
clouds gather dark, hazy and misty and Vilvaldi plays,
                                 his rhythmic, harmonious violin.

I wonder if you can play the piano. You play on emotions, so very well executed, from piano to crescendo down to sad melody. Beautiful.

Wow, wow, I am virtually speechless. I'm not sure I could say anything that would do justice to this fantastic piece of writing. I guess I could say good luck, but you won't need it.
