Ode to the Piano: Poetry Series

Ode to the Piano

What is it about pianos

That make them so romantic?

Is it the mixture of black and white keys

that are so visually pleasing to the eye?

Is it the melodic tunes that are created

When pairing those keys together

Or the emotional carthage that comes

From the deeper and darker notes?

What is it?

Is it the way that candlelight falls on those keys

When composers of old worked late into the night?

Is it the twinge that comes when the piano needs tuned?

Or is it simply the mystery of it all?

The songs that have yet to be written...

The melodies still unmade

And the keys untouched?
