Notes and Words

The piano plays its note anew

And seeks the scale that rings out true.

A strummer thrums a simple chord

One singer sounds a beauteous word.

Musician, tell us of your song

Of words of love and life and wrong.

Compress our hearts with stories true

Of magic, mystery and you.

Reveal your treasures with a voice,

Music, banish extraneous noise.

Soaring songs on wings of flight

Crescendo, passion, dawn and light.

Tempoed grace on ballet shoes

Orchestral movements trace the muse.

Notes and words together played

Soothing hurts and spirits flayed.

Music, majesty and more

In notes and words upon the score.

    1. A lovely thought. Maybe if I visualise it.
      Yes, I can definitely see me shushing the kids off to their various places in the morning, partaking of a leisurely breakfast (coffee and cigs) in the conservatory (that we don’t have) while pondering the next well-chosen word.
      If I build it, will it come? Do you think?
