Cantate Domino!

Next (short) installment from my Taize poetry book:

While melodies sing
Unknown sounds dance
From twisted tongues
As words which mean
So little
Say so much
To our silence

And laughter sings
In souls that dance
To a beat of joy
A harmony of hearts
Finds voice
To the tune
Of shared silence

Together with useless fact of the day: in the Taize songbook (at least this year's addition, I can't vouch for any others) there are four songs, in four different languages, which contain the words "Sing to God" (Cantate Domino, Spiewaj Panu, Cantarei ao Senhor, Singt dem Herrn). And during the time I was there we sang all of them.
