Strings of Melody


When frequency balances with pitch
Ensue notes of a symphony rich
Then music emerges from nothing
Filling air with a sweet harmony

O when the birds at break of dawn sing
Like skilled musicians mesmerising
Tranquility extends its grand hands
Calming nerves ere you start errands

Often we smile when a babe chortles
For I think that’s a psalm natural
There springs a sonata sans a band
Where no lyrics are needed to command

What about our very own heart beats
With its melody none can compete
Its rhythm on which goes life’s rhyming bells
But as tension ascends it dispels

Tune your ears to rain’s pitter patter
Wind’s opera or scary thunder
Or just hear the brooks gurgle down a hill
An echo drumming rhythm that fulfills

Let’s make rhythmic waves with a piano
A unique chord as of soprano
The violin of breeze will hum sweet tune
Soothing our tired limbs to prove a boon

Life at times is a cacophony
We can try to make it euphony
Creating music from contingency
Only we hold strings of melody
