Through beautiful choruses, sung by the world,

music floats on the breezes of all time,

People of all races and cultures, each unique,

hear and enjoy its sounds, so sublime.



Across the oceans from shore to shore,

as a playful wind sings, amid leaves of the trees,

Then, all to mimic the wonders of its fine tones,

while the Earth, absorbs in a blissful peace.



Through eons of time, beyond the confines of space,

the universe to appreciate it, as so,

Heralding the birth of lovely notes of all things,

this marvelous melody of life, it does grow.



To spring from the Cosmos as a bright and burning force,

it swirls and twirls into the void,

A communication of the grandest kind,

and to be born from the Light, so much to be enjoyed.



A language to leave a message of creation and hope,

is this music, a life giving force, to be,

A sweetness in the humming of birds and the bees,

a melodious concert, and is all so free.



A dramatic rehearsal of the cords within its verse,

this magical and fantastic composition.

Flowing sounds of its movement, enthralling and revered,

by us, of the human condition.



Music is played by a rivers choppy dance,

by winds that howl, and then subside,

The storm to complain, by the thunder's refrain,

across the forests and fields, wide.



Nature is a composer of a symphony so strong,

yet mild and soft, as the snow,

Amid crashes and the bluster, a swirling strength,

to die and be gentle in its flow.



Music of the churches, celebrated on this earthly sphere,

to reach the ears and needs of all who hear,

Music sung and played by the instruments of man,

and of the common and natural things, so grand.



All to have a purpose, then a uniting of all,

and created within the greatest of lights,

as a burning sun so shines by the day,

and a silver moon, to brighten the nights,



Over the vastness of all this universal life,

a welcoming harmony, to us, it sends,

With all the meaning and in its comprehension,

a language, for us to transcend.

People do not have to speak the same language to love and appreciate music from around the world. The birds sing and animals perform in the universal serenade of life.

You are right, music is all around. All we have to do is open our hearts to see.

I believe that in music there are no differences in life forms over the entire universe and that it is the one true way in communicating. Sounds in a rhythm, sounds that create a sense of life and a life giving force, sounds that tell others that we are still alike despite are outward appearances; these are the good qualities that music provides us.

When I chose this title for my work, I really meant the Universal Music and not just the world wide form. I believe that music is a part of all creation and goes with all and outward, into the Cosmos.

Lovely and, "nature is a composer of a symphony so strong" ... Yes, I'd have to agree that even Beethoven's 9th pales by comparison to nature; Shakespeare, Mozart and just about anyone else is smoke screen next to a Lake or forest....

Enjoyed your work and voted up

John

The concert of our parrot as he listens to music gave me the inspiration for this poem about a universal language in music. Music is being a way to communicate with ocean dwellers in new studies. I believe that some day mankind will communicate with other life forms from new and exciting worlds. Enjoy. whonu
