This is a reading set to the music that inspired the poem. It started as an experiment on my blog here. I heard the music and decided to open MS Word to a blank page, play the music again and write a poem. The Musical piece is long and it seemed odd to have the user play the piece and try to read the poem because the poem would likely be read faster than the song. So I decided to read the poem to the music and allow the readers to just sit back and listen if they want or, they can follow along with the words. I did have some fun with the words trying to use their positioning to paint certain objects from the poem or to ride with the music. I hope you enjoy this, the music is amazing! This is another one I’d like to redo, maybe try for a lower voice. Or get someone with a much lower voice to read it.
There are some long spots with no words, just close your eyes and enjoy the music 😀
I hope you enjoyed!
