Brothers In Arms
...inspired by 'Anthem' by Anthony Hecht
The deft will fashion melodies
and cast them to the wind,
proclaiming hopes and verities,
colours unbeknown'st to us
will hover and distill,
and splash 'til they're analogous
to God's almighty will.
We as students of the art
would seek a kindred tone,
interpret measures of the heart
'til grace and joy are one;
re-create with strains mellifluous
the stateliness of Brahms,
sonorities of Mahler,
artists, brothers in arms!
