Grade 6 Poem

View group questions.

To print this group, add it to a test.

The guitar leans in the corner of my room

Collecting dust, and nagging me

Teasing me with tunes not played

Like a child yearning for a playmate

Silent silky strings, soundless, song less

The right notes a treasure inside a vault

My fingers have not figured out how to unlock.

Maybe the key to the riches

Is hiding behind more patience, less hurry.

Time to blow off the dust.
