Pride of Place

Tinkle, Tinkle, Tinkle, on my grandfathers piano Twinkle, Twinkle, Twinkle, I’m the eyes of tomorrow Sitting on the worn, torn piano seats pillow Tinkle, Tinkle, Tinkle......plays Pardus-sparrow Black, white, smooth, those keys I adore Toes hardly yet, do touch the floor I sway as I play, I want more and more Of grandfathers piano “old Theodore” Written 23rd January 2022 For Pride of Place Poem contest Sponsor Julia Ward.

Angela, congratulations on your win with this creatively written and formatted monorhyme. I really relate to the image of the little girl playing at the piano with feet that don't reach the floor as I started to play the piano at age five. Sending you blessings!

Hi Angela! Yes I still love to play the piano and try to play as often as possible. I have a keyboard in my office that gets regular use! Do you play an instrument?
