MMM Festspiel Poem

Claude Debussy by Claire Sykes

Contained in notes the
Lifting of sounds engaged
And passing the
Underlying composure of
Destinies understood, of
Everything relying, everything

Dying with each tone remembered,
Each tone
Believing so much in itself
Usurped only by the passage of
Solidity singing the only music
Sensed in its knowing, the yes of a
Yearning finally reached
