Angus has sent in a wonderful composition entitled "Miracle of Life".
Here is the link:
This work was inspired by a poem of the same name by Christie Grahame:
The Miracle of Life
The Miracle of Life begins
As Autumn over Summer wins,
And eve'ning breeze its warning spills
The near advent of Winter chills.
Then Garden Beauties fragrant dance
As bait to Busy Bees entrance,
That they in frenzied honeyed lust
Spread wide the fertile Pollen Dust.
Descending Dust seductive show'rs
On Stamens of impassioned flow'rs
Till brilliant Petals fold and hide
The Miracles conceived inside.
Their Beauty now beyond recall,
The withered Petals fade and fall
Revealing as they drift to Earth
The Seed their Beauty brought to birth..
But Seeds of dormant Beauties wake
And with their probing Fingers break
The earthy Crust that Winter's Frost;
Cemented firm and Rime embossed;
Had in its frozen shield encased
The seedling Beauties new upraised.
Thus Miracle of Life's re-told
When probing Shoots as Leaves unfold.
Thanks Angus for sharing this beautiful composition. The sonority and musical textures you've created are superb. I enjoyed visiting your website
