Accord by Grant Harbison

I’m enchanted by a certain chord
Beguiled by a transient twinkling of perfect timbre

Impulsively I play the track again

And absorb the ethereal tones

Feeling the dulcet sound

As it surges through me

Impinging my soul

And inundating my mind

I wait for the time to come

For that moment of perfect pitch

And when I hear the notes again

I’m engulfed in absolute bliss

But the harmony is brief

And my elation abruptly ends

Causing a feverish desire

To play it once again
