A Poem About Le Petit Salon de Musique

Listening to Cello Piano Duo


Sunday afternoon
Sunlight slanting through the trees outside
Stretches of snow still on the ground
Strains of Beethoven in the air
Cello and piano
In near perfect balance
I drift back and forth
Listening to the amazing duo
Watching the sunlight
Shining off of the few remaining leaves
Feeling a balance
That warms my soul

A Poem by Dave Tarbell inspired by the experience of hearing Ismar Gomes and Wan-Chi Su perform at Le Petit Salon de Musique on Sunday, December 15, 2013.
