Even Though the Earth Is Sunk in Sadness
|Music: Prelude in B-flat minor.
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques.
|Even though the Earth is sunk in sadness,
And all its children know that they will die,
Serenity like music calms this madness,
Touching us with truth that needs no eye.
Each soul in fear and trembling waits to see
Reason drown in one last ecstasy.
