Chamber Music

Strings in the earth and air
make music sweet;
strings by the river where
the willows meet.
There's music along the river
for Love wanders there,
pale flowers on his mantle,
dark leaves on his hair.
All softly plating,
with head to the music bent,
and fingers straying
upon an instrument.
(James Joyce, Chamber Music, 1907)
(16 giugno 2008, Bloomsday.)
