melodic sustenance

‘If music be the food of love play on.’ Let mellow harps arouse the appetite And ‘lark ascending’ serenade the night. If melody enhances sweet romance Then may the air be filled with joyful song And flute with graceful timbre play along. If music serve to kindle glowing hearts, May instruments in harmony resound That love in perfect unison be found. 02.04.20 Famous Poetic Lines 2 Poetry Contest - sponsor : Silent One If music be the food of love, play on - Shakespeare
