As on the Sea of Galilee, The Christ is whispering "Peace."
Only a man harrowing clods In a slow silent walk With an old horse that stumbles and nods Half asleep as they stalk. Only thin smoke without flame From the heaps of couch-grass; Yet this will go onward the same Though Dynasties pass. Yonder a maid and her wight Come whispering by: War's annals will cloud into night Ere their story die.thomas hardy

Held in a lunar synthesis, whispering lunar incantations Dissolve the floors of memory And all its clear relations Its divisions and precisions.

Bittersweet creatures : So what is art, that it can enhance social abilities and transform the self? First of all, art is something that lasts and can spread to others.

"I had this really interesting whispering vibrato. It sounded so intimate and spiritual and ethereal, and it reminded me of Jeff a bit. I think I can sing with just about anybody, but he's one of the few singers who truly intimidates me. He's one of the best I've ever heard."jeff buckley

[Concerning the Water Ouzel, now called American Dipper:] In a general way his music is that of the streams refined and spiritualized.
