Music: Credo from the B Minor Mass.
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
|Thirty-five has all the joy he needs,
Having memorized the sacred score.
Infinite beauty rests within his hands,
Rising from a sea of music stands,
The sound mere presence to the silent core,
Yet far from the rendition that he reads.
For now, the faint allusion that he leads
