this is the story of a gathering storm:
the clouds pushed and pulled by an unseen hand.
the legion of raindrops changing the mountain’s form,
the charred scar of a lightning bolt’s firebrand.

this is the story of a fragile vessel---
a cask of wine or a casket of pine---
crushed to dust by the mortar and pestle,
mixed with the runoff from a copper mine.

this is the story of defiant joy,
of music making burdens lighter,
the academic, poetic polemics of a poor peasant boy,
composed with a Holy Ghost writer.

this is the story of sixty-two years;
listen to my life flash before your ears.
