O wonder-flower and splendour-bower
Of ecstasy’s music-tower!
Beauty’s cry, serenity high,
Clarity’s poise, immensity’s choice,
You own, you own, you own, you own.
Music-waves of perfection-flow,
Music-waters of satisfaction-glow,
O Ustad-maestro, in you have grown.
[Dedicated to the French composer and pianist Haridas Olivier Greif]
