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.

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!

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!!!!!
