Through the voice, the soul's work is done.
Janet Baker

Cragflower. Music of the sea.
         The flower still standing
in its tormented place.

Morning full of voices. Mourning too.
         Mahalia singing On My Way
and making it to Cay-nen Land.

On a rock, sit, listen to Bjorling
         sing Only a Rose
over your friend's ashes.
