Music Is The Mirth Of Life

Music is the mirth of life
The sound of joy
Comfort in strife
It captivates the eye with sights to behold
Resounds in the ear, whispering treasures untold
Oh! Taste it’s sweet nectar, so pure like fine gold
Move in its rhythm, let it capture your soul
Feel the caress of its ebb and its flow
For Music is the mirth of life
The sound of joy
Comfort in strife
Let yourself go, for this is your chance
Music beckons, Will you not come to dance?

I am a musician – though not a very good one. I was asked to write a voice-over introduction to a band concert and so I came up with this. Those who are passionate musicians seem to identify with the sentiments expressed here. I know I do.
