Ancient Joy

To feel your breath in your fingers, as once

I read it, is to receive instant feedback,

immediate expression of your art;

to hold in your hands, tunes older than you.

And out the back door with the punters.

All those who don’t understand this joy.


This ancient joy.


A little St. Patrick’s Day poem, courtesy of the five hour gig I played with Emerald Road. I don’t really want you all out the back door, don’t worry. Tongue in cheek and all that.
