Messiah
 
Pianissimo to fortissimo,
Diminuendo into crescendo,
Handel’s ink, deep from his mind’s reservoir
Note by note by note — began to flow.
 
Across the world: voices, strings and horns play
In December’s perennial bouquet.
Beauty for the ears — melodious sounds —
The Messiah flowers this winter’s day.
 
By Peter C. Venable
