A soothing balm is good music
For it can provide succour even to the sick
It has in it rhythm and harmony
Sweetness that we experience in melody.
It is a rich and cultivated craft
And also a grand and graceful art.
It provides us genuine entertainment
Through various notes and compositions,
It can have a positive influence on our mood
And do us a world of good,
Music and dance are great companions
And with exercise too it makes a good union.
Yet we should not forget there is music in nature
In the rustling of leaves and in birds songs of all hue and colour,
Music is even conjured up by good health and happiness
And by many such gifts that we as our blessings count.
