Evolution of Music
By Mark Gooch

Emotion released on a tapestry
Through colors rich in tones
Chaining of notes as
Instruments display their souls
Minstrels of lost love, hero’s deeds,
And lust for gold.
Royalty of ages
Mankind’s chosen few
King of Rock and Roll
And Queen of Soul
Evolved over time
Invoking a dance or
The tapping of toes.
Even so
They do not compare
With the wind’s flute-like serenade
In harmony with the cascading stream
Blanketed with a veil of pure
And pristine fallen snow.
