Item details

Leisure Arts 1989 Leaflet 847. Design by Pam McKee.
Touching poem, wonderful gift for a musician, a mother. Chart is gently used with no marks or highlighting ( I stitched it for my sister and her special needs daughter.) Stitched on #28 cream pastel linen approx 9 x 10.5
"The Ivory and the Child
The piano stood deaf, quiet, sturdy
Ivory keys silent
In remembrance of old concerts
Waiting for the touch of The Pianist, The composer, The fool, And the dreamer.
But all that came was a small barefoot child,
Who knew only a simple five key rhyme
But played with such feeling and tenderness
That the piano felt blessed
And afterward, both sat content.
The piano in its grandeur
The child in her innocence
Both pleased in their own separate way."
