The Gift of Music

A wonderful gift
given to the musician
to play a instrument
truly a life mission

To practise your craft
bringing many such pleasure
takes many dedicated hours
with effort and committed endeavour

Whether it be a violin or piano
a clarinet, flute or guitar
indeed a harp or a cello
without it there can’t be a star

The next time you have that chance
to put on your musical ears
remember what brought it about
indeed give a resounding musical cheers

    So true...I have many talented musicians in my family...unfortunately not myself..but they seem to have just been born for it...such a wonderful talent and yes I am the loudest fan!
