About time I posted another poem.....

Desert Music

I can see the values
So long cherished,
So long held dear -

When life was gentle,
Security the key,
Time enjoyed -

There once was harmony,
Tunes so clear,
Melodies so fresh -

7th August 1991 - The Royal Albert Hall, London, England.

This was written during the performance of "Desert Music" by Steve Reich. My first exposure to his music which led me to becoming a huge "fan" of his.
