Happy Birthday Uncle Charles!

I hear the violoncello, ('tis the young man's heart's complaint,)
I hear the key'd cornet, it glides quickly in through my ears,
It shakes mad-sweet pangs through my belly and breast.
I hear the chorus and it is a grand opera,
Ah this indeed is music- this suits me.

Walt Whitman
