music (?) poem #22

one reason I go to the UU group on
sundays is to listen to Bonnie E play  
I wanted to learn piano as a kid so
did my sister yet there were too many
notes all at once we did much better
on strings but here’s how we gained
keyboard aplomb we’d take a hymnal
sit together on the bench patsy with
two fingers would plunk out the hymn
notes for soprano alto I’d do the same
for tenor and bass our chords were
halting seldom together sounded  
simply awful yet it was a fun sport
our gifted pianist mother covered
her ears went somewhere else
later she’d accompany us on our
violin sonatas–sweet sounds–but  
a Bonnie E? patsy and I were not!
