music never dies

the ghosts of great composers

have an aura that still stands
in other's breaths, they've conquered death
and play with nimble hands
 
the trails, they blazed, are dotted
and with staff, they drew the path
when others come with pipe and drum
they solve the aftermath
 
you want to be remembered ?
curves of beauty must be etched
they linger on and though you're gone
your legacy's been stretched
 
the journey once thought ended
in new footfalls will refresh
when one creates, they cheat the fates
that dine on mortal flesh

There's really not much more to be said.I enjoy your outlook on music.I was in fact listening to Bach as I read this peice.this generation has a disturbing lack of respect for such wonderfully composed music.it pains me to see what music has become.there use to be so much thought in music.literature has also fallen a great amount.there was once a time when words meant something.romance is dead and it shows through everything we see and hear today.there was once even a romance in war.great piece.
