like a wand of light
and began to play.
The old violin had a golden tone-
each note as bright and warm
as the sunshine
coming through the window.
Today's poem is plucked from the pages of the verse novel After the River the Sun by Dia Calhoun, which will be published on July 9th, 2013. Check out my full-length review of the book.
This is a companion to Dia's verse novel Eva of the Farm, which I quoted for Poetry Friday last week and reviewed earlier this week. I've also included both titles on my Verse Novels Booklist.
