Dear Lady Aster,

Thank you for the Ode To Joy. I was listening to #9 earlier and wished to memorize the verses!

Best, Michael

Dear Dr. Mike;

Michael-

Why thank you. 'Tis my signature.

In translation, the most famous piece of music in the Western canon reads in part:

Joy, O wondrous spark divine,
Daughter of Elysium,
Drunk with fire now we enter,
Heavenly one, your holy shrine.
Your magic powers join again
What fashion strictly did divide;
Brotherhood unites all men
Where your gentle wings spread wide…

also:

Joy is drunk by every creature
From Nature’s fair and charming breast;
Every being, good or evil,
Follows in her rosy steps.

Somehow this piece of culture was neglected in my formal education. History is Myth!

love and strife,

Lady Aster

*Freude, sch�ner G�tterfunken*
*Tochter aus Elysium,*
*Wir betreten feuertrunken,*
*Himmlische, dein Heiligtum!*
*Deine Zauber binden wieder*
*Was die Mode streng geteilt.*
*Alle Menschen werden Br�der*
*Wo dein sanfter Fl�gel weilt.*
