We place freshly picked flowers.
We pour the best spirits buried in the ground
We whisper, barely to be heard, all the things that
we couldn’t dare tell them before out loud
Composers know well that they are the most loyal,
Numerous and attentive listeners
Only for them do they save the most poignant notes,
Intoxicating as the freshly picked flowers and
The best spirits buried in the ground.
