|ruments can these||C|
|, so small and||Am|
|stic things of half a pound|
|val in their haunting sound|
|en harp I lug around.|
What instruments can these be? They seem immune:
Not strung with any strings to break,
Not bound with any pegs to shake,
Not covered with a skin to flake,
And never out of tune.
What instruments can these be? They can’t be real.
The notes emerge so sweet and pure,
Chameleon-like, with such allure
That organ, drum, and dulcimer
Could sue for look-and-feel.
What instruments can these be, beyond compare,
That novices can play with such
A comf’rtable and feather touch
Their hands don’t even bleed too much?
It seems a bit unfair.
What instruments can these be? I am undone.
The digitizing circuit sings
Like goatskin drums and catgut strings.
I wish I’d never seen the things!
And I must get me one.
|must get me||Am|
