Two Line Tuesday: Hans Christian Andersen


Where words fail . . .

Jonathan Smith

music speaks.

– Hans Christian Andersen 
from "What the Moon Saw" (paraphrased)


  1. This reminds me of a song my daughter's choir sings: "How Can I Stop Myself From Singing."
    " My life goes on in endless song
    Above earth´s lamentations,
    I hear the real, though far-off hymn
    That hails a new creation.

    Through all the tumult and the strife
    I hear its music ringing,
    It sounds an echo in my soul.
    How can I keep from singing?..."
