Riehlife Poem of the Day: Genie Keller’s “Director!”
Genie Keller, along with being a fine poet, is a longtime family friend. --JGR
by Genie Keller
Within my heart, my very being, throbs the chords of endless music.
In dreamy sections of my thoughts,
my hands and arms direct the stream of notes.
I am engulfed, my heart beats fast,
I plunge into the rhythm of the theme.
My foot taps the sweet succession of the tones,
and I feel the structure of the tune.
My secret is that I am filled with love of sounds.
I become the master of a great symphony.
Who could pray for more?
So, I am surrounded by the instruments that I direct.
For there I am singing the arias with great pleasure.
I am waving my baton to my invisible artists who are bound to me.
And then, with my Allegro’s, Andante’s, Allegretto’s and
Quick little Allegro’s, I feel at home with my musical friends.
