Poetry: At the Children’s Violin Concert

At the Children’s Violin Concert
–Susan Cataldo
From drenched: Selected Poems of Susan Cataldo

strands of horse hair
gathered up by
           a small
hand to play
           a piece by
J.S. Bach
who drank 36 cups of coffee every day.

    I like him because he was
    inspired by his belief in God
    & he played the organ in a church
    in Leipzig & he walked on
    cobblestone streets to his home
    every evening where he fathered
    many children & wrote music
    for his wife to clean house by.
    He worked hard all his life
    & when he died, he left us
    all the little notes he made
    for himself while he was alone.
