Die Zauberflote

Zoroaster whispered in my inner-ear:

Look! Listen! Synaesthesia is here:

Fill your eyes with music

Fill your mind with taste

Judge from the plunging depths

To the necklines of lace.

Feel this rise to the screaming heights,

Smell out these plangent affirmations.

Silence from the Queen of Night

Or a cacophony of exclamations?

He's soaring, always soaring, he's winging out of sight,

Swooping back to earth, with a metempsychotic delight.

For this is all Am-a-deus,

A man-beyond-all-bounds

A musical maestro-alive-in-sounds,

Heavenly arias tumble from his soul, his brain,

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Is all a-flame.

There is some magnificent phrasing and description here John. A friend of mine who is a real Mozart fan told me that Mozart never made any mistakes when writing his music. All corrections were made in his head not on paper I am intrigued by the painting.


Nice one

And lest we forget...

"Judge form the plunging depths

To the necklines of lace."

Beautiful.

"Feel his rise to the screaming heights,

Absolutely breathtaking.
