DPF / Mallarmé

For musicians in the visual arts play at inaudible decibels, from French Symbolist Poetry.

from Saint / by Stéphane Mallarmé, translated by C. F. MacIntyre

touched by a harp shaped
by the Angel in evening flight
for the delicate finger-tip

that, without the old santal
or the old book, she balances
on the plumage instrumental,
musician of silence.
