Musical Revelry

November 2, 2008
By Olivia Wainhouse, Briarcliff Manor, NY

He finds solace in music,
agile fingers passionately strumming
heartfelt notes and soothing lyrics,
pouring into a crescendo
peaking in revelry.

Intense concentration
a creative force
mesmerizing the listener
and magnetic lyrics
like the Sirens' call,
filling the air
with intoxicating creativity.

Fingers calloused from years passed,
still gliding across the strings
gentle touch and rough emotion
a musicians' heart
filled with the comfort and beauty
of music.

He's still soaking in lifetime of musical revelry.
