Whatif a bolt of lightning strikes me?...

My wife and I enjoy poetry and love to read the same to our grandson so we would both find this book to be fansinating. We both enjoy writing poetry as well ... so I thought I would share with you a pros that wrote a few months ago.

The Old Violin by: Steve Capell

The strings of grandpa's violin
Awaits the master's hands
Setting in the corner
Trying to understand
Years have long past
Since his fingers stroked the strings
Invading tunes into the night time air
Making the old violin sing
Memories of melodies now invade the air
Allowing my soul to hear what once was played
Now only dust covers its strings
Looking as if its been betrayed
The day will come when Angels will arrive
Taking my soul for a heavenly ride
The heavenly gates where all things come true
And Angels wipe the tears that have been cried
I will ask the angels at this special time
One front row center seat on God's heavenly shore
Handing over the old violin
So grandpa can play the the strings once more © 2010

Thanks for the opportunity!

I would love to have this copy for my collection. I have a ragged old copy of Light in the Attic that has been read over and over again for years, so this would be useful for years to come. (They just don't bind books the way they used too, though!

Amy said...

I'd love to win this book as it is the only book of Silverstein's I have yet to read. I don't own any of his books and would love too. I think he's an inspiration, an adult who has retained some of the innocence, humor and light-hertedness of children which comes through in his work. Few authors write for adults and children alike in the same work but that is one of the many wonders of Shel Silverstein's poetry and prose, it speaks to all of us, young and old.

This is a fantastic giveaway, Bingo, thank you!

Amy said...

Thank you for directing us to Shel Silverstein's websit. What fun! I enjoyed the pictures of Shel and the listings of favorite poems but my favorite was the section "Memorize By Tomorrow" because of the fun way each poem or prose section was presented. I spent quite a while at Shel's website. He's such a creative and talented man!
