What Is Music To You?

Music is freedom that relentlessly exists
Freedom of speech
Freedom of thought
Freedom of creativity
Freedom of imagination

Music is ever soothingly healing
A bombardment of on-going expression of feelings
Music is a tool of unity
Always bringing people together as family
Hence be described as a mentor of spirituality

Music is magic
Performing its tricks
With sweet instrumental tones and lyrics

Music is emotionally captivating
Music is positively distracting
Music is a form of beautiful art
Passed on as a message on a public stage

Music is as powerful as water
Flowing in and out of generations
Trapped ever so often only by its own enormous power

Music is an angel
Singing out from the skies as she flies
Music is love
Music is the food of all moods
Music is perfect and it is good for you

VERY nice! I felt such a smooth warm flow while reading this masterpiece! ! ! thanks!
........my favourite stanza... Unless you can muse in a crowd all day On the absent face that fixed you; Unless you can love, as the angels may, With the breadth of heaven betwixt you; Unless you can dream that his faith is fast, Through behoving and unbehoving; Unless you can die when the dream is past - Oh, never call it loving!
I just wanted to say that I, like Justin Hayward, was reminded of this poem when I saw the movie 'Adventure' with Clark Gable and Greer Garson, whose movies I just adore, but have to admit I had never seen this movie. It brought the poem back into mind and I had to go search for it to read it in full again. I remembered how I kept a copy of it on the corkboard above my desk at college. Who does not remember Browning from his/her college days? Different kind of movie for Gable and Garson, but memorable because of them.
Wonderful.., by very good fortune I stumbled upon this lovely poem via a Classic movie starring Greer Garson / Clark Gable called 'Adventure'.Again fortune smiled on me and fate took a hand on youtube...and here I am. Her poems and this movie are just what the doctor ordered for a rank sentimentalist... and aspiring romantic. Greer Garson delivers the last stanza impeccably! What a GREAT MOVIE..... WHAT A GREAT POEM! ! now to reading all of her works.See the Film....
amazing poem! amazing poet! overall amazing!
