"Thou comfortest as music does..."

Thou comfortest as music does, and wine,
And grief dies smothered in thy purple fold.

From "Il Bacio" by Paul Verlaine

Mihály Zichy, c.1900

Just came across this today; quite apropos, as I am doing a little favorite blog travelling to decompress before a concert.

Wishing the very comforts.
