As a flute

Pic from here

Greek, Early Classical Period, 470–460 B.C.: Eros playing the double flutes.

As a flute,

please play me as a flute

in your hands

Give me breath till I sing

so that ring each my most hidden reed

in my heart; press my strings

and my skin: it’s so tight!


Make me music

        make it beautiful

                              so I receive

SL, Galadriel’s Mirror, October, 30th 2016
