Inspired by the famous aria, a song of great emotion and a favourite of mine


At times you discover a magical sound,

a beauty that stills the passing of time

lucky are those who one such have found,

whether music, song or simple chime.

A song I heard when I was young

has a pathos that still brings a tear,

draws out, when with passion sung,

jumbled feelings of love and fear.

I feel the hurt of betrayed Pagliacco

as he draws his Clowns happy face,

heart breaking, on stage he must go,

though love has gone without trace.

A song can passionate embers fan

it is what makes humanity unique

thus has it been since music began

a gift from the world’s mystique
