Sound is Clear
By David Smith February 2, 2010
Instruments of music: wind, and reed and pipe;
Strings and drum and voice; a continuous rhythm tonight;
O to have it all, emotion purrs the sound,
To hear the pleasure and the tension;
To make the world go round.
It’s how the artist captures noise, and controls it in a song;
O the peak of performance as words sting hard and long.
To only be the artist, and control the emotional touch;
The power of a leader, where expression means so much;
Instruments of music, to only control the pace
We control our thoughts; courage of life we face.
