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.
