The Music (Ballad)

A friend asked me for help one day
She wanted to learn to make
Beautiful music, but she was surprised when I said
“Piece of cake!”

“From my fingertips it pours
From my voice, it rings a bell
From a crickets chirping legs, it sounds,
In a black case does it dwell”

“Music lives in all of us
In many different ways
You can simply tap your foot
Or choose an instrument to play”

“The music that you choose to make
Is really up to you
But I have one small request,
May I hear it when you’re through?”

What a great piece. It’s so understandable. You made it really easy to see where you’re coming from. I hope you keep writing, because this is really good. You should check out some of my stuff. I think you would like it.
