On a First Impression of Schumann (PC)

Posted to Poetry

a turmoil of choirs
a flurry of high frequency bees
and lulls of rest
mimicking an ocean gait
in midst of delicate hurricanes
with daylight glinting, leaping
off the facets churning
kneading, in one phrase

complexity like a nautilus
fine spinnings into certainty
and curvings toward insanity
closely guarded by silver threads
binding crosswise 'round the whole
tying with the grand and jewel-like
miniature exchanges
dug up by leviathans,
delivered by the gulls

(thought I'd get a more serious opinion on this board)
