Reflections

Music and poems

Beautiful melancholic music on shuffle
and random poems…
Yet one song and one poem
seem to ripple in the heart more..
Why do i write, read, listen…
sometimes everything seems so superficial..
like the waves..
but what’s the difference anyways,
everything is one and the same,
light, dark.. silence, sound..
writing, not writing.. words, silence..
and yet silence seems vast, wide, endless, pure..



Be near me when my light is low,
When the blood creeps, and the nerves prick
And tingle; and the heart is sick,
And all the wheels of Being slow.

Be near me when the sensuous frame

Is rack’d with pangs that conquer trust;
And Time, a maniac scattering dust,
And Life, a fury slinging flame.

Be near me when my faith is dry,

And men the flies of latter spring,
That lay their eggs, and sting and sing
And weave their petty cells and die.

Be near me when I fade away,

To point the term of human strife,
And on the low dark verge of life
The twilight of eternal day.”


Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam



“Behold, we know not anything;
I can but trust that good shall fall
At last—far off—at last, to all,
And every winter change to spring.

So runs my dream: but what am I?
An infant crying in the night:
An infant crying for the light:
And with no language but a cry.”



“There rolls the deep where grew the tree.
O earth, what changes hast thou seen!
There where the long street roars, hath been
The stillness of the central sea.

The hills are shadows, and they flow
From form to form, and nothing stands;
They melt like mist, the solid lands,
Like clouds they shape themselves and go.”


Alfred Tennyson
