St Cecilia is the patron saint of music, for those of you who do not know, (but now you do. =3). In this poem, basically, I've described how I have dedicated myself to music, how it brings me true happiness, and how it, ultimately, is my saving grace. And, pssh, who needs love when you've got music? Hahah. Basically, it's me being a misanthropic violist.

Your odes like sunlight upon my cheeks,
Your disciples, your angels, are the company I seek;
Pray keep my spirit safe from harm,
Let me rest a while in thy melodious arms.
Your angels do not fain their love,
Their breath of live borne from above.
Their paper-bound immorality from within my chest,
A steady hand upon mine own, but lest;
A ludicrous life is mine I live,
But with thy succour my spirit I shall gladly give,
To the testament of music, a rock of ages,
Devout I am to thy angels’ pages.
A love not found upon this Earth,
I find a passion of substantial worth,
I delve into your patronage,
And offer to you this suffrage,
Pray keep my soul within your eyes,
I shall keep mine to the stars and skies,
Pray keep my hands to the pages, the monuments,
The statues and reminiscences, my mouth free of laments;
Music! Sayth I, my saviour, my love,
My Saint, you, your voiceless hymn the wings of doves,
True love and delirium, absent, abound,

My euphoria, my amorousness is but one thing: sound.
