The End of Music

"Music is the purest art": the thistle
springs in the mind among the herbs;
the rain swishes clean in its curtain
of violins; and resonance embodies
what the universe of stars and walks
of power! - here resolves the dilemma:
green springs the note or thundering
grey: a grand shrouded ordering.
 
So why should I not smash this earthen
image! Not in preferment to the music
of the winds: I live in the 21st century.
But to deafen the centuries, and turning back
the composers' scores to find what each
had aimed at in a thousand ways was silence.
