The Phonetician’s Love Poem

Epiphanios o Phantasiopliktos

Sweet modulations of fundamental frequency
Air particles dancing to and fro
Greeting each other as they pass
Alongside soft tissue and mucous membrane
Playing airily on varying wavelengths
And somewhere in my inner ear
Ossicles and hair cells take up the call
Now a firework of neuronal excitement
As this voice of yours, a memory though,
Soft, sweet, soothing sounds
So lovely, so charming, such delight
Oh! never fades from my mind.
