A Guitar Song

It has entertained the masses
O’er the stretch of time,
And has seen its heyday
In the light and the lime.

The guitar is fashioned
A stringed instrument
That mirrors the heart
With rhythmic sentiments.

And like an old friend
That never goes away—
The guitar is a staple,
That is here to stay.
