The Pub II

Inside pub steins stout magic spoke
‘neath genie wisps of bangle smoke
Brown cone cigars, deep chubby pipes
Aromatic spills to breach the night.
Music calls to muted songs 
Rough knuckles echo Bodhrán drums.
Flute, melodeon, bouzouki*, mandolin
Penny whistles, uilleann pipes, one feisty violin.
Pied piper rhythms, pied piper beats
Bold Celtic persuasions to move proud legs and feet. 

To Daver and friendship, thank you!

* Bouzouki...A stringed instrument that could stand up to the volume and intensity of fiddles, flutes, accordions, and pipes.
*uilleann pipes...Irish bagpipes...melodeon. an Irish accordian

    Love it. We have suffered our first big snow, actually nothing for you up there in Canada, but over 6 inches for us. The poor porch kitties poke heads out once in a while, but don't want to wade in the snow. Love and hugs. daver

    I chose La Traviata -check me if i'm wrong - because it begins so softly, so mysterious. Love, daver

    A fun and energetic piece Michelle. My mother's husband collects German steins; I do not know him well, but I know he's very proud of them :)

    The soup has corrected my poem for you and will no longer omit pussy. I got after them and they fixed things so I am no longer angry. Love, daver
