Villanelle: If you think you think and not feel your thoughts invade

Villanelle : If you think you think and not feel your thoughts invade

	For Mozart's solo piano in Concertos Nos. 20 & 22, K466 & K482 (1785)

If you think you think and not feel your thoughts invade
The conscious via sub-conscious tease unconscious
Tingling dulcet chords chased by strings through cascade

If you think you think your ideas in stockade
Echoed by winds second cousins vertiginous
If you think you think and not feel your thoughts invade

Aeons of whistling neurones make myriad aubade
Flutes clarinets horns bassoons trumpets flirtatious
Tingling dulcet chords chased by strings through cascade

Runaway scales submerge thoughts mind not fingers made
The conscious giving in to outpouring rushes
If you think you think and not feel your thoughts invade

Surrender will till tortuous arguments fade
Cascading chords bully strings winds unconscious
Tingling dulcet chords chased by strings through cascade

If doubts till unborn day ne'er will sink nor downgrade
Hark not to high extra-mundane Art grown luscious
If you think you think and not feel your thoughts invade
Tingling dulcet chords chased by strings through cascade
