G.F. Handel poem

1/6/16 George Frederick Handel 

Music for the Royal Fireworks

​As we study the “spiritual lives of major composers,” we listen to their music and discuss it. I asked Matteo to close his eyes and describe the first part of this piece of music. The adjectives he chose are as follows:

MAJESTIC, GRAND, DECLARATIVE, HAVING RESPECT

Then I asked him again to close his eyes and write a poem about the picture that is in his mind as he listens… 

THERE HE STOOD IN ALL HIS GLORY

THE ONE WHO LOVED SO PURE.

HIS PURPLE LIGHT IN ALL IT’S SPLENDOR

AND MY SOUL REDEEMED, FOR SURE.

 

REVERENTLY, I LISTEN

AS EACH NOTE MAKES IT’S POINT.

THE SOUNDS FILL MY BODY

AS NO OTHER SOUND COULD.

 

HALLOWED BY THY NAME

LET THIS WORLD KNOW,

YOUR LOVE REIGNS STILL

I LOVE YOU SO.

 

Part II of this piece gets more lively…

Adj:  RUGGED, HAPPILY EXCITED, PERSISTANTLY ROWDY, FANTASY AT IT’S FINEST

 

I SEE THEM RUNNING FREE AMONGST THE REDWOODS,

THE AIR SO CRISP AND FILLED WITH THE PLAYFUL, HAPPY ENDURANCE OF THE HUMAN RACE.

THEY CALL FOR US TO RUN WITH THEM IN HARMONY AND PEACE.

THEY ARE THE SOULS OF THOSE WE LOVE,

WHO SPEAK TO US FROM HEAVEN THROUGH MOTHER NATURE’S BEAUTY.

LET US ALL JOIN TOGETHER IN THE CELEBRATION OF LIFE.

FOR IT IS TRULY A GIFT FROM GOD, AS IS THE LIFE EVERLASTING.

  1. Hi Teo!
    Just got the biggest rush of love filled goose bumps Teo!
    We love running threw those Redwoods with you in our dreams & reminisce over the time we shared together with you there, Thank you for showing us your special place & thank you for caring so deeply about Evie there when she was feeling so much ( I wonder, Do you remember us funny wacky Aussie’s?)
    & Thank you for sharing your last ice block with Evie! Evie appreciated very much you doing that, & knew that it was very special to you, thank you for doing that it was so very beautiful to watch you & Evie connect, share , grow stretch yourselves I know that was a big thing for anyone to choose to do!
    We just want you to know that you, your Mum & Dad are in our hearts always & often we think & talk about our adventures to America & meeting you we love you infinity & beyond, together you talk in sacred woods, know always Evie flies there, she too is just beginning to learn RPM & able to make choices, it is so empowering & us as your parents are continually blown away by all that you are, & being able to hear your voice & what you are truly thinking is just the most beautiful thing in the universe!! You are just PERFECT exactly as you are , you both are like taking a walk with God, & I feel fiercely blessed the endless lessons of the deepest love, of trust, of presence , of faith, of strength & the gifts of seeing how we can view the world differently, Growing beyond our wildest dreams. I want you to know YOU make the world to me a much much MUCH more delicious place !!
    I hope that you & Evie can talk together & stay in touch ( even though I think you both already do in your awesome telepathic ways, you talk to one another? Do you? I think Evie does ;0) she reads my mind all the time 🙂 .. I think we as parents want so much for you gorgeous beings & that put’s pressure on you sometimes but you know we are learning too, & just want the very best for you & want to find ways to help you achieve all that you want to achieve in life & we along this journey can learn so much from each other , ( actually I think I am learning more from you guys than you will ever learn from us ;0) & i want so much to be more like you, just be in the moment & find beauty in everything I see you try & fall & try & fall & try & try & try & try again, you really awe & excite me to see & learn so much more about life & what truly matters, I am forever grateful to spending time with Teo in the special forest, Yes I felt those tree’s & special things talking too! I knw you feel so much more than we do, but I want to learn! & I know you want to learn so much too & that is real awesome that we can find ways to reach across the mysterious we both have about things, when we open our hearts & find a place to love first , to trust 7 to know that what ever happens we are, what we are & we are perfectly imperfect, let love be our ligt in the darkest forest nights.
    Owh & Teo I also want to share with you my dearest memories to be witness & see you & Evie talk together very abundantly sharing delightfully in one another’s company. Do you remember jumping up & down in bed, peaking out at each other giggling with glee like little loveFULL creatures & sharing that special tribal language with Evie, a love language of deepest wisdom & understanding, sharing in ways where words are not needed! That truly was profound moment of bliss to know that Evie is not alone & has her own tribe, one where you meet & have found one of your own, I bet you can not believe how much this melted my heart!! At least that is what I see, Maybe I am right? Maybe I am not? I would love to know Teo 🙂
    Sending you our very best wishes, our love & our faith in you!
    YOU KEEP ROCKING THIS WORLD TEO!!
    Evie, Kristy & Ian xxxx000xxx
