Euphony

November 27, 2011 § 2 Comments

Euphony is the mother of all sirens. Her song is the sweetest and most  harmonic sound ever to enter the ears of human or beast. It is not just the melody that is appealing, but also her incredible command of poetry in song. She is step-sister to Cacophony, but they haven’t spoken in years. It is rumored that Euphony is only the name she is using in this Age. Some believe she is actually Vakhari, one of the four Goddesses of language whose only known weakness is an addiction to the poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, specifically for his poem Kubla Khan.

 

1. Agreeableness of sound; pleasing effect to the ear, especially a pleasant sounding or harmonious combination or succession of words: the majestic euphony of Milton’s poetry.

    In that case, I just had to share this!

    “For it is of their nature that the jabberwocks of historical and antiquarian research burble in the tulgy wood of conjecture, flitting from one tum-tum tree to another. Noble animals, whose burbling is on occasion good to hear; but though their eyes of flame may sometimes prove searchlight, their range is short.” (tolkien)

  • These just keep getting better and better. LOve, her, and her red swhishes. You are amazing!!!
