Magpie Tales, 1/12/11

A page of music
has notes so light
and short with rests,
they're peeling off the page

coloring our air
with sounds so bright
we can laugh
and dance or stare,

at a banner
shedding enough flowers
to cover all the snowflakes
in our hair

That's just what the notes do - as music!
(sorry - my crap typing made the first attempt nonsense!)
