Yun Yi's Stuff

Signore, ascolta!

Posted on: March 10, 2010

Yes, through a gentle sigh in the dark
I heard her, Signore
she is a woman —

Her sigh is like a pearl
dropping on the icy face of grief
with each quivering of ripples
she redefines the winter landscape

Her bodyline winds through shores
like wind, pushes waves to a end of sea
where — she captures every glimmer of moonlight
turns every darkness
into sunrise

Her voice rises with the Sun
by each melodic tone
she composes the sorrow into music
music into comfort — in which

she embraces us
with her mighty love of grace

Oh Signore, ascolta!

She is a woman!
through a dazzling glare of the Sunshine
I see her —
The Mother of the Universe!

This poem is inspired by Signore, ascolta* sung by Maria Callas
*Signore, ascolta — aria from opera Turandot, composed by Giacomo Puccini. “Signore, ascolta” is Italian means “Lord, listen” in English.

What a powerful effect this woman's singing must have had on you, to speak of her so reverently and rapturously! The magic of her art-to transform grief and darkness into beauty and light.

thanks np.
yes, i “understood” her singing during very recent years. she truly had the most beautiful voice FOR mankind. i use “for” not “of” because i feel her voice represent some higher being… even though i am not religious.

Beautiful, yunyi. I especially love these lines, 'dropping on the icy face of grief
with each quivering of ripples'. Always a pleasure.
