The Pianoforte

Written by: Lori Lucas McClure


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
