Music Have I Loved --"The Infatuation"
Music--Music I could run with you Across cities of clouds, the suburbs of stars I could vanish amongst veils of violets, And lost together like children in love Are we in a sweetly sweeping melody. How oftentimes I want to take your hand And falling desperate into outstretched your arms, Forgetting myself in among your stately gardens. Quiet falls the rain within my heart, Reminding me of the solitude with whom I've walked hand in hand withal contentment Until I met Music strolling 'neath the juniper. I removed my shoes and joined the dance In which I danced until I could not feel my feet, And seized with a sudden passion I take hold Of you--you of whom, silently, within myself I've longed to taste and melt together like butter; You that touched a place in my soul and made your mark Permanent with a permanence unperishable And painted me with brilliance and a sensual sweetness. Now I don't remember how to live, For with the gentle touch of your hand I transcended into a creature of passion and beauty And I cannot return through the waters dark, Without mercy, in their gray complacency, For I live to love you--you whose name is Music.
