I Am Music

From the prologue of the opera Orfeo by Claudio Monteverdi

I am Music who, with
sweet sounds, knows how to calm
every troubled heart, and
now to noble anger, now to love,
can kindle the most icy souls.

Singing to the golden lyre I am
accustomed sometimes to delight
mortal ears and I thus inspire the
soul at the sonorous harmony of
the lyre of Heaven.

...

Now during my songs, now gay,
now sad, may the birds be silent
on these trees, no waves heard
on these shores, and every breeze
cease to blow.

(Translation taken from Robert Greenberg, who points out that Greenberg means Green Mountain, and Monteverdi means Mountain Green)

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.
