(for Johan Oomen
– translation: Peter Mason)
EXIT V – Final Chord
Hands of the man
Who always greeted spring
With simple words:
The first sun is the best.
Hands that put the sun in the sky.
Soft hands reaching over a console,
Fingers dancing over the keys -
The earliest music is the best.
Hands resolute in a final chord,
A song of sorrow and loss.
No discord in these hands
Searching for harmony.
