Practise! ...inspired by 'Anthem' by Anthony Hecht The deft can fashion melodies and cast them on the wind, proclaiming hopes and verities, uplifting humankind; colours unbeknown'st to us will hover and distill, and splash 'til we're analogous to God's almighty will. Might we as students of the art assay a sweeter tone? interpret measures of the heart 'til there's and ours are one, and mold with notes mellifluous the majesty of Brahms, the sonorities of Mahler will reveal to us their charms!
