Bell Jar Studies


Oh, to study the shape of sound!

To draw out tone for so long that
time seems suspended!
To conduct tone, like gold,
into ever more fine strands,
pulling, weaving, interleaving
no less exquisite tone
in the cadential silence
that relieves the beautiful strain
by ever so gentle retreat.
