Sunday Muse - Music

"Self-Portrait With Accordion"
by artist Guido Vedovato
            The Accordion Player 

Using my assets and talents best I can 

Hands and Feet--be my most useable features 

Large hands perfectly covering the octaves 

Fingers nimble large and long tickling the keys

These feet tapping to the beat they're keeping time 

Parts you cannot see, my lungs and vocal cords 

Voice seems made for yodeling and calling cows 

Songs I play and sing echo among the hills 

Mountain top to mountain top down to valleys 

Valleys below, crowds and the lone sheep herders  

I play my accordion au natural 

plainly and precise--Nature can understand 

I love Nature and her ways, she loves me too

Small fellow, Red Fox with white face, stays with me 

But Sundays I'm at church to play the organ 

Oh, I play for weddings too.  Could it be yours?

I love this, JIM! Took one look at his massive digits covering those keys and knew this was not going to turn out well. Love the yodeling and calling cows line ... that he can do!

Delightful, Jim, from yodeling the cows home to entertaning the lone sheep herders.

A musical man, a nutural; be he among the cows, the mountains or the church benches. Bravo

Good Sunday Jim

I like the whimsical mood of the poem and how you focused on his best aspects of hands and feet as well as his innards. Nicely done!
