Strike The Chord

Poem By Joseph Wilford

Remorse and regret
Anger and sorrow
Bleed out in minor chords

Soldiers fall and mothers weep in A minor
Dirt falls on caskets of the dead in D minor
The glory of Tragedy parades in B minor
Death stalks and grins in E minor

Take me home, I sing
and quietly slip under the waves.
I hear the music.

I have music class tonight and I hope you don't mind if I print this out and share it with my class Joseph. I think they will appreciate this poem very much. Sincerely, Mary
