Poem of the day

“Strings in the earth and air” (Chamber Music I)
by James Joyce (1882-1941)

Strings in the earth and air
      Make music sweet;
Strings by the river where
      The willows meet.

There’s music along the river
      For Love wanders there,
Pale flowers on his mantle,
      Dark leaves on his hair.

All softly playing,
      With head to the music bent,
And fingers straying
      Upon an instrument.
