Live with passion and excitement and others will be drawn to you. -Anonymous

She plays those ivory keys
Frustrated with the tune she cannot find
She can feel it there
Sneaking around in the shadows of the tuning pins
Giggling in impish delight
As she slams her hands down
A cacophony of tortured notes
That could have been beautiful
With patience

The author's comments:
At our house we have a very old, horribly out of tune piano. One evening I was listening to my sister struggle with a little melody and thought it funny how the tune seemed to be going out of its way to make it difficult to get right.
