The violin

The violin

Chayym Zeldis

 

The violin kept its notes to itself

like birds in a cage…

 

The man kept his heart to himself

like a hound on a leash…

 

Then one day the man left the room where he slept

and walked into the room where the violin rested…

 

He picked up the bow, lifted the violin,

cradled it in the hollow of a shoulder, and played…

 

The notes were freed.

 

So was his heart.
