Music!

Can you hear the music that’s drifting all around?

It’s never very far from you, that so emotive sound.

 

Perhaps it’s kind of classical, piano with some strings,

or maybe it is tribal, a more basic kind of thing.

 

Could be it is to waltz to, or perhaps from some ballet,

Or some good ol’ country music – who am I to say!

 

Maybe you prefer the sort that’s commonly called ‘Pop’,

or the kind that gets you on your feet to dance until you drop.

 

It could be that contemporary or trad jazz is your thing,

or show tunes from Broadway – but then maybe you like swing.

 

Do you go for the electro sounds or heavy metal chords

Or are you a big fan of stuff that scoops up those big awards?

 

Is singing with the vocalist something you really love to do

or is music that has not a word what does appeal to you?

 

Do you have a favourite track, one that makes you sigh,

or something that brings back the hurt and makes you want to cry?

 

There’s music all around us, just waiting for our ear;

some is made this very day and some comes from yesteryear.

 

Whatever kind of mood you’re in, however you do feel,

there’s bound to be some music that to you will just appeal.
