By B. SCHER
"It was quaint wisdom of the ancients
That the universe is set to music,
That the Creative World
...Was a note of harmony.
All things are kept in motion
By melodious sound.
The poets sing of the music of the spheres
And the Psalmist rhapsodies
Of the morning stars —singing together.
"Rhythm is the cause
Of the sparkle mystic message
Of a summer evening,
The look of devotion
In the eyes of a faithful dog,
A chance phrase of a True Love Song.
Happy the soul so delicately attuned
To the cosmic purpose
That it can discern the hidden meaning of life
In the harmonies and discord of the world,
—And perceive with Emerson
In the darkest, meanest things
That always, always ...something sings.
