On a Quote from Leibniz 

‘Music is a hidden arithmetic exercise of the soul, which does not know that it is counting.’

Arithmetic might please my soul,
although it seems, that on the whole,
my spirit, cannot calculate.
Instead it seems to concentrate
upon the sweet melodic role,
to keep the beat is not its goal,
I’ve never known it to extoll
arithmetic.
Yet melody requires control,
harmonic rhythm fills the hole,
one hears the chords elucidate
so, is the way they resonate

arithmetic?
