Songs From Our Instruments

Songs From Our Instruments

The old spinet repaired and played.

It produces no scandalous serenade,

nor maddened shriek.

Peaceable canticles,

to match the public tenor

of our actions.

Lovers echoing each other’s laugh,

creating adagios that move with their union,

songs vibrating to those lover’s frequency.

Your mellifluous spells ring in my ears,

as our songs join

to create complete symphonies.

The memories of music keeping people alive.

The power of symbolism,

whether ancient cryptograms

or musical notes-

sing your way through life,

and let your last song

be beautiful and glad.
