Pachelbel in the Morning
A Moment in Time

Pachelbel's Canon in D
waiting to be played again and -
for one precious moment in time -
the room, filled with golden morning light
Monday Morning
5:59 AM

Time is still a-flying
The golden light
lasted but a moment
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

* "Old time is still a-flying"
from a poem by Robert Herrick

  1. Dear Readers,

    you may listen to the music here:
    Pachelbel's Canon in D

    I once entered the Church of San Maurizio di Venezia and heard the most heavenly music playing: It was the Canon in D - for years, our home was filled with my children playing the piano version.

    Here is a link to a post I wrote about San Maurizio:
    A Little Night Music.

    A wonderful week to all of you,

  2. I've heard some haunting music in churches for sure.

  3. That is a beautiful Steinway! And music too.

  4. Isn't it wonderful to catch that moment in time when the morning light shines just right. With Pachelbel too, what delight.

  5. Charles Gramlich,
    oh yes, hauntingly beautiful, that is! ;-)

    Sara at come away with me,
    it was built in 1905 and has a very beautiful sound.

    morning often catches me with the camera running from one end of the apartment to the other, trying to capture the moment. Or clouds, or shadows. ;-)

  6. I once knew an awfully cute Roman name Maurizio...
    Wonder where he is now...
    ? ? ?

  7. Paris Breakfasts,
    I never met him, or any other Maurizio. ;-)

  8. Wonderful, Merisi! Pachelbel is always one of my favorites--so many people joined in marriage to that beautiful music, too.

  9. Ah, the first pic is a great memory of my voice teacher!

  10. Such a lovely piece of music! And that lovely creamy-pinky interior!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
