A Symphony of Nine
Our capacity appears to be
a maximum of nine symphonies
Beethoven, Schubert, Mahler; Dvorák too
bravely tried to go beyond the ninth
before early, they all passed away.
The list; longer than those mentioned here;
composers; who never wrote to ten.
Was nine the limit of their vision?
Or, can we not comprehend a tenth?
