Dead music

The music stopped suddenly
but the band had left earlier on

in our merry hearts
the subtle echo of melodies
was progressively replaced
by the dull shroud of silence

wanting to keep something 
of the magic in our minds
we tried to whistle
the tunes that were gone then

but our lips refused 
to utter a single sound

and we sighed 
a mute symphony
that disrupted the landscape
deep in our souls
and withered all our flowers
under a stony sun

Claude Lopez-Ginisty
