GIRL AT MY PIANO



This week I am very pleased to participate again in Carrie Van Horn's weekly poetry circle,


The Sunday Muse #38


Rather a strange one this week . . .  as will be revealed!!!

Girl at the piano!
Please answer me.
Some questions I have.
I hope you agree.

You sit at my piano
The one shown below
It's eactly the same
As the one in the snow.



(Hands off my Yukulele)

Please bring it indoors
and out from the cold
How did you find it?
And why be so bold?

Why sit ye outside
In that icy cold chill?
If you stay there much longer.
You are sure to be ill.

Come into the warmth
Through my friendly doorway,
With my piano now inside
And out of harm's way.

And now you are here
You are welcome to stay
I'd love to be near you
And sit close as you play.

Just what is your music?
Do you play from the heart?
A romantic concerto?
Or a piece of Mozart?

Or do you play Chopin?
A Waltz or Etude?
A delightful Nocturne?
Or a tuneful Prelude?

I can see in my mind
Small hands glide the keys
 Your blonde hair is swaying
Like it catches the breeze.

The emotion of music
Is a power indeed
Be it Bach or Beethoven
We are moved ~ guaranteed.

A Sonata so lyrical
I'd then play for you
The Moonlight Sonata
To bring tears into view.

We speak the same language
Our emotions are one.
But are you real?
Or a memory gone?

  1. This is lovely Eddie! I love the rhyme and meter in this! It is a wonderful ode to the life and love of a piano! Also, the link you have for this week leads to your post for last week. Thank you so much for being a part of the Sunday Muse Eddie! 😎 We are delighted you are here!

    1. Thanks Carrie. These prompts are excellent discipline, forcing us to write on demand and not wait for ever for inspiration which may never come . . . :)

    2. You are very welcome Eddie, and I feel the same way. I loved Tess Kincaid's Magpie Tales, and it inspired me to write many poems over the years. :-)

    3. I an in contact with Tess on Facebook and said I enjoyed her Magpie Tales and also said I had joined your's. She seems happy and settled in Northern England. Thanks again. Pity I had the wrong link on this prompt. I think some Sunday Muse colleagues were not able to see it . . :)

  3. a melodic story indeed - carries the tune of wonder and surprise and a lovely invitation to sit and play - but then, great twist at the end .... is this indeed, just a memory, of someone gone?

    so for the "out in the cold" - it all loops around rather tightly .... but doesn't feel too heavy for the losses ...

    interesting interpretation of the photo - you've done a great job with it :)
