The Beingness of the Meek

 


There are some
who can tell you
the difference
between
a Magnificat
and
a Te Deum
at twenty-five yards
 
they’re not so good
at one hundred yards
 
but it doesn’t matter
for they shall inherit the earth
anyway

I always look at your writing with interest, Gerald.
I suspect that you wrote this with tongue in cheek and I shall answer in kind.
As one who is a musical ignoramus and can’t tell the difference between a canticle and a hymn at five paces, I know that I shall inherit the earth but the way it is going it won’t be worth the legacy.
Cheers, Luigi

Very droll Gerald, sophisticated writing and funny, a good combination. Trevor.

Hello
Well, I know nothing about the technical side of music, or much else, really, but I found this to be a clever warning on the way the world is turning. I like it when I am as intrigued by a piece as I am puzzled.

blessings,
jolen
