Music Is the Flower of Culture
Philip Claude Andermann
Music is a flower of culture
that transcends language.
It is a flower dance whose words
are in every tongue,
are on every tongue.
It can be expressed in countless ways
through different instruments.
It rouses the uniquely invented instrument
within each being to reinvent itself,
to express itself anew
uniquely in partnership.
It is the wind dancing that flower
as we breathe in the world
and breathe out joy
to the darkest corner,
answering the farthest mirroring star
that lives forever
sharing in its traveling light.
It is the prison become
the palace of the heart.
It is the house protecting us
to reach into the cosmos
with total freedom.
It is the foundation for Peace
built amid the storm side-by-side
with the jewels of sweat and of the storm tears
becoming the stars within to still guide us.
Music dances also as the waves of light,
in the spectrum of the heart.
For the music continues to be heard
in the octave of the heart,
and only the storm shall disappear as an infliction.
Never forget the music in your heart
and no one else will ever be able to forget it.
