My mother taught me how to play
each note to form a song.
She showed me how to hold the bow
and keep my down stroke strong.

I learned from her instruction:
Push your wrist back. Elbow under.
She coaxed the music through her hands
and brought forth strains of wonder.

Mom taught me much of living
in those early childhood days…
of violins, of artistry,
and of a mother’s ways.
