The Four Musicians - an early piece


The Four Musicians
 

The four Musicians began to play;
One by one, they began to weave the notes.
 
Arcane music vibrated against the walls.
Wave by wave, it grew into power;
Power the body could absorb,
Forced its way through protected inhibitions.
The mused music breached the innermost cells
With its hypnotic guile;
It fed onto the hidden, secreted prenatal beat. 

The spell was cunning,
Masterly conjured;
Their hands bent the air to their control.
A modern mysticism with medieval sorcerers;
A medieval mysticism with modern spells.
