Song sung blue

the music of the singing strings
the melody and rhythm brings
and prints a pretty pattern to the ear

the poetry of metre fine
of effortless and flowing rhyme
is close akin, to music very near

the two together make a song
so well connected, seeming strong
and memorable, for all of us to hear

and, in a waltz they consummate
a marriage of the intimate
a swirling sensitivity, so dear.
