Roughened Fingertips

When fingertips are rough
Connect them with the wire
And let them freely slide and twang
The resonate supplier

The frequency transpire
And waves that flood the room
Do soften roughened fingertips
When audit’ries abloom

How sonic muse do plume
So disregard the stage
It’s in your hands, it’s there and then
Embittered and assuaged

The opened spruce-wood cage
And canvas to bedeck
Do welcome roughened fingertips
To dance the wiry neck

    enjoyed reading today, my husband plays the guitar and he always says he has to toughen up his finger tips.
