By Singing

Piano on tiptoe
Combs the unruly forest
Measure by measure
Releasing the grasses,
Shuffling leaves.

A noisy stream
It cups and cradles
Murmurs and chimes
Among mossy rocks

Now still the water flows,
But clean and clear,
A rainforest sonata
Drop by Drop
Pure water joy
By singing
By piano song.

  1. You've captured the soul of beautiful music here, Charlie:

    "But clean and clear / A rainforest sonata."

    Have you taken up the piano? Or maybe you've been listening to Swan?
