Treasure Island

William Messent


Music in the Air


When life seems tough and full of care
And things go wrong at every turn,
Reach out, there's music in the air.

As Elgar said, it's everywhere,
This melody for which I yearn
When life seems tough and full of care.

Be silent, still, and yet aware
Of something you can just discern -
Reach out, there's music in the air.

This music is a thing most rare;
To sooth your soul it will return
When life seems tough and full of care.

To feel its pulse my fervent prayer,
Its mode and melody to learn -
Reach out, there's music in the air.

Then take some music - all can share,
It's yours by right so do not spurn.
When life seems tough and full of care,
Reach out. There's music in the air.

My inspiration was this quotation: "My idea is that there is music in the air, music all around us; the world is full of it and you simply take as much as you require"
[Sir Edward Elgar]

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
