Poem for a New Musician

Poem for a New Musician

Make your music, my child!
Try the old piano out and see
What magic it can do.
See how each key, whether black or white
Has its own perfect place.
Feel the coolness of ebony and ivory.
Hear the notes; soft when you lightly touch,
Loud when you pound.
Now go and play the tune that has been hidden
Away in the heart of you.

  1. Oh, mother dearest, what a beautiful poem! I love the rhythm and descriptive imagery. You're ever one of my favouritest poets. <3

    Much, much love,
    Your Duckey
