The Blues

The Blues ...

The long,

lonely sound

of a finger

sliding down

a catgut

or wound,

making vibrating

sounds.



A slow,

toe tapping beat,

that floats

your thoughts

as you sway

in your seat,

your ears

eagerly greet,

each note

played so sweet.


A tune

that describes

exactly

how you feel.

When words

can't make it,

near as real.


A long

lonely sound

that can set

your mood

as if your floating

lightly down

on a cloud

to the ground.


Notes,

that touch your soul

And your Heart

keeps the beat

with the rythym

sadly sweet.



So perfectly played,

that when its done

and the last note

still rings.

You long

to hear the sound

that filled your soul

while still hummin'

the song

that is through

called...

the blues
