NOTES OF MUSIC


NOTES OF MUSIC

  
The ruddy drops of blood
That bleed from my heart
Will keep oozing out
Till the notes of music start.

Be it a soulful symphony
A Beethoven, a Mozart
A raga seeped in melody
Malhar, Yaman or Nat.

The crooning of a cuckoo
A cicada’s tymbal art
The Angelus bell tolling
The rumbling wheels of a cart.

A gentle cradle song
Sung  by a mother’s heart.
Or sullen dirges chanted
When  two lovers depart.
  
The ruddy drops of blood
That bleed from my heart
Will keep oozing out
Till the notes of music start.
