The conch shell decorates the chest
With the ocean resounding in its soul
As the distinguished maestro plays his best

Soft, low, and inviting just to test
Which music touches the soul
The conch shell decorates the chest

While the cobalt blue waters of the ocean crest
The violin gently held and bow softly pulled
As the distinguished maestro plays his best

The gray hair and beard show his years stressed
But his love only sees his great gift while
The conch shell decorates the chest

That under the open window sits at rest
Sun shining on that bay as the violin music drifts astray
As the distinguished maestro plays his best

While his love just a room away dances and sways
To the music that touches her soul this day
The conch shell decorates the chest
As the distinguished maestro plays his best

(This is written from  a picture that is on James Fraser's web site.  I have his permission to 
use the picture for my write.   Thanks James.)

(The word maestro here means: a master of any art.)
