just a smidgen

nocturne

nocturne

in the soft quiet that lingers,
echoing timbered notes play on,
your sweet voice, a sympathetic
resonance of open heart’s strings

i will sing of your love, always
and of countless blessings found
in your beautiful reply, tender
in sacred cadenced lullaby

So.. when a string is played on the cello, (and guitar, as I’ve just learned) often an open string will vibrate in an harmonic echo.. something like two hearts replying in harmony to each other. This song is dedicated to mother’s whose hearts are filled with harmonic echoes for their children and reflected in each lullaby sung.

blessings & love,

barbara
