Or is it atmosphere hardly noticed?
[Persons walk around campus on this sunny day as if oblivious.]
The music plays. It’s done well.
It is beautiful, no matter that it’s not heard.
No matter that the beauty was to and for itself.
It was there,
and might have been witnessed.
If not—or inasmuch as not—
no matter. It lived—and knew
a lusciousness of itself.
Our flash in the Dark of Time is a joy
all its own, gently concerting voices among the trees.
So, we play along among the senseless constellations.
