Harmonics

Luthier:

mend me
my notes have gone discord.

My hourglass figure
on your chin to rest
my waist
your bow to clear.

tune the pegs
fine adjust
the screws :

Strike the bow
col legno !

Pluck my strings
finger my board
grip
pulsate
hammer
mute
drone double stop
vibrato
trill.
When done
tell me:

Luthier
before you
I will play.

My shimmer
my pitch
harmonise.
