Peace In Music.


There was the orchestra before me,

An orchestra from many different countries

Not necessarily agreeing with each other

In the place from which they came,

But once they started playing

They became as one,

As the music came from their hearts,

Through their instruments,

Into the world around me.

Music is so powerful

It can bring everyone together,

Together in our bitter world.

Why cannot these countries be at peace

And send each other music,

Send music to each other

And bring peace, love and happiness,

Bring peace, love and happiness to our world.

  • Comment from author about the poem: We went and saw the Andre Rieu Maastricht concert at the cinema last night and the video shows a Ukranian soprano with a Ukranian mother and a Russian who was in the concert. Music can bring all together.

    A fine write Gold.

    And there you pose the question;
    Five easy lines is all it took.
    Now then it demands the answer -
    And no – it’s not the next Chinook.

    I hope this doesn’t depress you too much Andy. Never forget the music.

    • Goldfinch60

      Not at all Dave, music is always in my life.

        It surely is Neville.


      • Paul Bell

        Definitely, close the door to the world and switch on the music.

        • Goldfinch60

          Totally agree Paul.

          If only the world could make music and not war. I've often considered music as a powerful force. It can, indeed, bring people together. I believe it would bring peace if countries' people had the choice and not their authoritarian despots. A well-spoken plea for peace through music. - Phil A.

            Thank you Phil, music can certainly bring people together and one day it may well do that for the world.

            I agree with you, Gold. Music heals and soothes my soul, if only more people would share that with each other.

            • Goldfinch60

              If only...... those words of such importance Brycycle, thank you.
