And Never Brought to Mind


My coffee-stained guitar

It is a wonderful piece

Cat gut strings attached

Bought at age of nineteen

Lots of training and practice

Strumming and plucking

Freestyling it here and there

Some good old country loving

And I tried Auld Lang Syne for

The family of three

It went fairly well

For all the good it could be

Maybe this year

I’ll try it again

While Frank Sinatra’s

New York, New York

Plays once more to the

Packed Times Square

Of bright-eyed ladies and men

It has a soothing tone

This acoustic instrument of mine

And it’s the rhythm and melody

That I continue and search to find

In Response to the Daily Prompt: Strike a Chord
