"And what in fluctuating appearance hovers, Ye shall fix by lasting thoughts."
Those who think one needs wings to fly must have been deaf...Like one of the comments on the youtube page for the link above says "The piano keys are black and white, but they sound like a million colours in your mind."At other times, in a different mood, when you need words to latch on to the music as it reverberates through your soul:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5X-jd9Y8moorhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erPnyi90cIc&t=100

Waise, random analogy:Ludovico's piece moves through your soul like a silken scarf (or hair!) moves through your fingers.. it feels so good, and yet you can't get a grip on it to hum it along later.Adding lyrics to a symphony (like Regina's) is like acquiring scopulae on your fingers (like those of spiderman's which he uses to climb buildings!): you can latch on to the music through words and remember it and feel it even when u have no access to music players.Speaking of.."van der Waals?""Present teacher!"
Haha, I like the analogy. Funny, yet apt. And I just noticed I provided the link to my poem by mistake. I actually wanted to post the link of the music that inspired me to write that very poem. Here it is:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlvUepMa31o
