"Piano Emotions"

Trinity School of Midland
Midland County, TX

I place my hands,
my mind is calmed.
The melodic tones circulate through the air,
they trudge, stomp and cry.

Nail tips click against white, against black.
My manicure chips as the tempo picks up.
I don’t care; this is too much fun.

Fingers march like a small army,
up the keys they fly,
making music pleasant to the ears.

Emotion fills the audience
and droplets like dew glide from their eyes,
tears unstoppable.
All because I placed my hands.
