Play Me a Song

By
Play me a song on that violin,
a remarkable, wondrous tune.
Play me a song on that violin;
make music of color exhume.

Hear the pinks of those steady strings,
red of passion, ballads of blue.
Play me a song on that violin,
tunes of yellow and purple and every hue.

Play me a song on that violin;
make music of color attack.
I want to hear grey and watch it beam forth:
purity of white and depth of black.

Play me a song on that violin,
a rugged, disturbing tune.
Play me a song on that violin;
make music of color exhume.

Wow, this is gorgeous!! Excellent job!

Please check out my poems if you get the chance-- I think two of them are also about violins. ;)
