Für Ludwig

Form: Free Verse

The music played on piano keys
repeating octaves over again
so many times, over again
I hear them in my mind
so many times, they echo from the past
when practice was needed
every day practice
practice
practice
up and down the scales
majors and minors
sharps and flats
and I practiced
and practiced
and practiced some more
until she let me play
‘Für Elise’
