Of dreams and reality
Your music has woken up this silent flute
Which was lying in dust of neglect
You picked her up, cleaned the dust
The touch of your fingers and lips worked wonder.
A beautiful cascade of music came down
The piece of wood became vessel of divine
Don’t leave her alone again, now or ever
Music will again forget her, she will lie dust covered!
