Love In Search

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is said to have once observed “Music is the universal language of mankind.” Author J. K. Rowling (in her book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), speaking through her character Dumbledore, says it’s “a magic beyond all we do here.”

Music and poetry share some of the same rich and universal qualities. My recent post Music: Best Gift Ever quotes the last four lines from Sidney Lanier’s lengthy poem The Symphony. The four lines from Lanier’s work were my inspiration for a poem about music that is reproduced below.
