CELLO AS EVEREST
by LUKA BLOOM

Refuge
Refuge
(2017)
She floated across the countryside
Playing cello on a train
I heard glimpses of another world
They linger in my brain

Cello as Everest
Her playful daily climb
Up to where the air is thin
Melodies sublime

Grateful for the bow
The finger on the string
Grateful for the girl
Who made the old tree sing

Notes come drifting through my head
Leading me to dream
I'm so old but a child again
In the world of Jaqueline

She gave up all she was
To be what she could be
She delivered with a smile
For dreamers like me

Grateful for the bow
The finger on the string
Grateful for the girl
Who made the old tree sing

Cello as refuge
Balm in wounded times
Finger, string and old wood
Rhyme
