Appassionato
by Emily Curtin
 

Music enraptures this daughter of Eve
Emotion bursting from euphonious note
'tis built and dies with harmony
Mystery in tenuous stroke
Trebling or purely flat
Music proclaims in waves
Pathos, Eros, Lovers' spat
A ruthless villain's rage
In life, in love, in God, in trust
Our lives with music we must equate
Project meaning, our thoughts discussed
Yet with diminuendo its grandeur grows faint
Yes music enraptures this daughter of Eve
It overwhelms with a longing innate.
