Poet on a String

 

 

 

let me stand next to your guitar

or embrace me with your nimble fingers

i can be any tune you want to play

Just be careful that the tune is not "Foxy Lady" with Hendrix weaving his magic on those strings!

A relevant write for V-Day, Jacob. Nicely written.

To be held and touched by a musician...
as notes of lilting romance plays in
three-quarter time... is a giving of
tenderness that brings serenity to a
melody from ancient music scored
on parchment parodies. truly, Pat

Nice. To be caressed and held as lovingly as they hold their instrument and be willingly played is gonna bring a smile to even the most emo of hearts 😀
