Some strains, some notes
a soft light flute.
A flute, a lute,
A blaring toot!

Ships on sail and men on feet.
Merry advances, sad retreat.
Games and sports and war and love.
Sun and moon and stars above.
God is great: His name we sing.
Hate not, love and let life bring
music, concord, harmony…

Look above: the blue blue sky.

A flute, a lute,
a mellowing tone.
Souls that mourn and
hearts than moan.

A lute? A flute?
Some strain once known.
