I remember being handed a score composed by Mozart at the age of eleven. What could I say?

Yet half the beast is the great god Pan,
To laugh, as he sits by the river,

For the reed that grows never more again
As a reed with the reeds of the river.

Soft eyes look'd love to eyes which spake again,
And all read more

Soft eyes look'd love to eyes which spake again,
And all went merry as a marriage bell.

Her voice, the music of the spheres,
So loud, it deafens mortals' ears;
As wise philosophers have read more

Her voice, the music of the spheres,
So loud, it deafens mortals' ears;
As wise philosophers have thought,
And that's the cause we hear it not.
