What Else Would I Want?

I was completely lost,

Lost in the world of Mozart

And in the words of a book.

I listened and I read with complete joy,

Lost to the world outside,

Outside my world,

My world of music and words.

I would stop reading

When the music pulled me,

Pulled me into the wonder,

The wonder of Mozart.

Mozart would then accompany me,

Accompany me as I read.

The fading light went by

And darkness was outside.

But I was filled with light,

The light of Mozart,

And the words on the page.

For what else could I want.

    A fine write and ethereal Gold. Heavenly - but listening to Stockhausen is like being in the other place: H...?! on a quiz show, one commented: 'He wrote weird and eccentric stuff'.
    I had a Ch......catalogue through the door - mustn't say the word yet!
