Sound of ambition in measured notes
music lifts up, places desires close
at hand as distant sources converge
having forgotten old anxieties, taste
exquisite sense gives, past preserved
ever present, life’s onward experience
brings best to mind in melody sublime
moments sitting there before the view
moving through the night in train
aspiring a future yet not clear nor plain
between strains of time, lake’s expanse
hidden in its depths, deeper valleys
steeper inclines from mountains rise
as thoughts echo, achieve and chide.
