Love in the music – Duet© (Poem)

Said Cello to Piano, you have all the right keys and notes

And you play in such a way I do adore;

Said Piano to the Cello, you’re a mighty well strung fellow

Have you not rested here beside me once before?

Dear Piano you are Grand, back then I couldn’t stand

I was merely a Violin when you last saw!


You’re so deep Cello,

You’ve the scale Piano

Do you think we might duet?


If we start Cello,

Never break your bow

And you must play until the end;

Never solo our sonata

Don’t flatten what is sharper

Else chorus I’ll apprehend.


Porticello, portamento

Sentimento, you and me two

We shall play, au naturel.

Other instruments uptempo

I won’t chase them with crescendo

To encore we’ll be compelled


Cello dear, before you hear

Poco amore in our score

I must suggest this little request,

I shall not quaver to begin

Nor let you pinch at your own strings

Until you buy me a Treble Clef.
