Ludwig Van Beethoven
From my heavenly vantage point
I can again relive my life,
As it was back then when I was young
And a fledgling trying to soar
On Zephyrus’s mighty currents.
Tempest-tossed, blessed by Polyhymnia,
Whose gold-embossed laurel I wore
With pride, I felt the hands of Rhadamanthus
On my earthly existence, and many afflictions
Assailed me to the point of exhaustion.
O Spirit Indefatigable! Soar now
On Love’s pinions outstretched,
Continue this quest to Life’s holy apogee,
Where God’s love perfectly reclines
In Crimson-hued ruby roses…
From chrysalis I now am a pathfinder
Opening up new paths for future generations….
