Those of us who live in large urban cities and have the luxury of a subway system, oftentimes also have the pleasure of being greeted each day with sidewalk musicians. It's a great opportunity to enjoy their talents for free or a nominal cost.

As I ride the escalators to the street above

I listen for the sound of magical love

Musicians tuning their sounds up there

Greet me every day as I climb the stairs

Stroking my ears each and every morning

Head fully clear; a new day is dawning

We all stand around; but no one is talking

Passerby now slow down their walking

Those earthy notes that make lovely sounds

We’re mesmerized as we stand above ground

Violin, clarinet, or an alto saxophone

Flute, guitar, or a strong, brass trombone

Magical renditions are never flawed

Toss down some money or give applause

Cling to the melody, timbre, and beat

Melody plays on as I cross the street
