My Cello This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

My Cello is a wonderful work of art,
Taken from a hollow log and shaped
into a half bitten pear on both sides
with smooth edges and sharp corners
Cut thin until the moisture opened up
the deep dark sound of meticulous Mozart and beloved Beethoven.

This describes the cello really well. I like how its short and simple yet it examplifies the meaning.

Advice to other cello players: for those of you who also enjoy rock look up Apocolyptica they play music by Mettalica and are fabulous!!!!!

I play cello too!!!! Cello is by far the best instrument I've ever heard. I just think that the author could've put more effort into describing the actual SOUND of the cello. But overall, it was pretty good!
