Israfel dwells among us! (At least I like to think so)
« on: April 19, 2005, 12:32:50 AM »


ISRAFEL

In Heaven a spirit doth dwell
"Whose heart-strings are a lute";
None sing so wildly well
As the angel Israfel,
And the giddy stars (so legends tell),
Ceasing their hymns, attend the spell
Of his voice, all mute.

Tottering above
In her highest noon,
The enamored moon
Blushes with love,
While, to listen, the red levin
(With the rapid Pleiads, even,
Which were seven,)
Pauses in Heaven.

And they say (the starry choir
And the other listening things)
That Israfeli's fire
Is owing to that lyre
By which he sits and sings-
The trembling living wire
Of those unusual strings.

But the skies that angel trod,
Where deep thoughts are a duty-
Where Love's a grown-up God-
Where the Houri glances are
Imbued with all the beauty
Which we worship in a star.

Therefore thou art not wrong,
Israfeli, who despisest
An unimpassioned song;
To thee the laurels belong,
Best bard, because the wisest!
Merrily live, and long!

The ecstasies above
With thy burning measures suit-
Thy grief, thy joy, thy hate, thy love,
With the fervor of thy lute-
Well may the stars be mute!

Yes, Heaven is thine; but this
Is a world of sweets and sours;
Our flowers are merely- flowers,
And the shadow of thy perfect bliss
Is the sunshine of ours.

If I could dwell
Where Israfel
Hath dwelt, and he where I,
He might not sing so wildly well
A mortal melody,
While a bolder note than this might swell
From my lyre within the sky.

-by Edgar Allan Poe, 1831

I never did clarify what the news was.....
I guess I can do that now.

Not more than 24 hours after I posted this topic...
Coz calls me up and tells me this promoter calls him and had been trying to find Newcleus for the past year.
He wanted to book us for a tour that he had put together.
I was typically skeptical about it...lol
Then Coz calls me up the following Monday and tells me that the contracts had been faxed and everything was good to go.

That afformentioned tour was...
FREESTYLE EXPLOSION.

Hehehehe...co inky dink? could be...but ya never know.
I like to believe there's somethng or someone greater than us looking out. :-D

from one of my faverit songs "Let It Rain" a reference to Israfels return   "Trumpets sound and a wrath pours down, angels dance to the new groove in town"

another by the same singer/rapper  "Controlling the mind of man the beast designed this plan but can it last for long so wrong? whats goin on ? gotta re-arrange it cause if we dont change it, there will be a revolution and i dont think that they want this, i can see a revolution and i dont think that they want this .. Michael and the Angels come for WAR!"
