Pachelbel in the Morning
A Moment in Time

Pachelbel's Canon in D
waiting to be played again,
the room illuminated
- for one precious moment -
by golden morning light

Time is still a-flying
the golden light gone
6:01 AM


"What is love? 'Tis not hereafter;
Present mirth has present laughter;
What's to come is still unsure.
In delay there lies no plenty,
Then come and kiss me sweet and twenty;
Youth's a stuff will not endure."
Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

-> Gatter ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying" - poem by Robert Herrick
-> Canon in D
