The Pianoforte

Tenderly the ivory keys call to me.

Their vibrating octaves like different voices

soft and hypnotic, drawing from

me the deepest yearning of my heart overtaking

my senses....helpless against its intoxicating melody.

Sweetly the notes swell,  filling me, lifting 

my spirit from its solitary place.

With each push of the keys the hammers strike a

chord deep within.   

Waves of inexpressible emotion

sweep over me enchanting, and mesmerizing they

carrying my soul Heavenward

    My late father was a composer who set a number of my poems to music.I miss seeing him and the piano and your poem is a fine tribute to that instrument. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    When I feel the need to calm down after a busy day, i sometimes will sit and play the piano. I find it very relaxing and calming to the nerves. You are right it affects every feeling in your soul. May the Lord grant you all your heart's desires as you delight yourself in Him.
