Ach, Bach
I知 a cello
Without a cellist
I知 a violin without a bow;
For me, Joy does not exist.

Oh, Beethoven
I知 beholden to Mozart
For lightness and charm
Yet, all the time you had trifles
Like Fur Elise to disarm.


Deep in the forest, the cello is a bear,
An animal that will never lie,
Wood that will never warp;
It痴 a beetle, solemnly going about his business
Around the roots of an oak.

In town, the cello is a portly gentleman
Puffing on a cigar the mayor!
In church, Johannes Sebastian Bach
Plumped on his red velvet
Organist痴 chair.

Of course Bach Cello Suite is a masterpiece of poetry and imagery, so imaginative and with your signature wit!

Ach Bach ~ well you really do snare how we could better appreciate and notice others and not always focus on what we can't have.
I'll get behind that cello!
