The Young Pianist

The Young Pianist

A Poem by Blue Moon Ice Cream
"

The title pretty much sums it up.

"
A dainty palm
Innocent, unlined
Curved to smile at the keys
Sees no harshness in the sharp white and black
Imagines no somber chords from the weathered old friend
A confident touch
Simple melody flows
Floating to the ceiling on angelic wings
A mere span of seconds, the ditty's short life
Yet delight lingers in the eyes
Of all who pause to lend an ear

Blue Moon Ice Cream
I wrote this at a piano recital. For some reason, hearing the sound of a piano always inspires me.

I agree with your words. Nothing as wonderful is to hear a talented person playing the piano. I like the complete poem. A very good ending to a excellent poem.

Well done B.M.I.C you've captured the essence of the instrument with well chosen words. I play the piano every once in a while and it is the most expressive instrument to me. There are a million and one songs on it. We just have to find them. Great poem.

Outstanding, I like to write snapshot poems also. It leaves everything to the readers mind so the picture paints itself. This is eloquent and it just has the feel of a warm, summer evening.

This is one of the best poems I have read on WritersCafe. So sweet and touching as if you whispered it into my ear. The words play such a powerful meaning to every line.
