Dr Abe V Rotor
Author plays the violin before a home aquarium of Oscar fish.
I touch your senses with the violin
in a variety of tune and melody;
I touch your world, and yours with mine,
together we make a fantasy.
I wonder what song you sing in water
if ever heard outside your realm;
the bleating lamb in Beethoven's ear,
thunder and the bubbling stream.
Do you also sing a Brahms's lullaby
or San Pedro's Ugoy sa Duyan?
March with Mendelssohn's graduation,
for real or just for the fun?
My fish do not answer, they are dumb;
or I can't hear and understand;
for worlds apart we are, sea and land
across a thin transparent sand. ~
