Strings in the Earth and Air

Strings in the earth and air
Make music sweet;
Strings by the river where 
The willows meet.

There's music along the river,
For Love wanders there,
Pale flowers on his mantle,
Dark leaves on his hair.

All softly playing,
With head to the music bent,
And fingers straying 
Upon an instrument.

James Joyce
           
 (Poetry on St. Patrick's Day by a son of Ireland.   I do not know the artist of the print but thought it aptly spoke Joyce's words .)
