A bridge to the other side,
Like the frets of a guitar.
Protect all the passersby
From the dangers of a car

The notes fly up
As their feet hit the strings.
I listen to the music
The sound of walking brings.

Their shadows hug the pavement
As the people play the notes.
Their voices add to the song:
“I liked that school” she quotes.

I walk across the bridge that keeps cars away from me.
My footsteps play the bars to make a melody.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS POEM. It is so beautiful, the way you present music, and I love the connection between walking the streets and playing music, and memories and protection. This poem also flows beautifully, adding to the idea of music you present. Good work!!!
