The Pearls of Pearl Street 32

Words of light and hope from 6th Century poet Taliesin, contemporary poet Amanda Gorman and
and politician Tony Benn

Here’s the translation for the Taliesin poetry.

Seven score chords
there are in music
The octave of every score,
Which is ever in harmony,
Enchants in calm
Enchants in storm
Enchants all there is.
In heaven above there is One
Who knows the harmonies

I was a string in the harp of
enchantment for nine years.
In water I was the spume.
I was a sponge in the fire.
I am not one who does not sing.
I am Taliesin
