One Life Beautiful

Grade 4
by Julie Giroux

 �One Life Beautiful� - The title itself is a double-entendre which in one sense is referring to the person this work is dedicated to as in �one life� that was beautifully lived. The other sense is a direct observation concluding that having only one life is what makes life so sacred, tragic and so very precious. This is an impressionistic work musically describing that condition. Shakespeare�s �sweet sorrow,� the frailty and strength of life, the meaning of what it is to truly live One Life Beautiful.
