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