Inspirational Insight

The following poem was discovered on the whiteboard in my studio waiting area. The author is a piano student of mine and she composed this piece while her mother was taking her own piano lesson this evening.

After her mother and I both read this piece, she said that she just likes to match words that rhyme. The poet is in the third grade. She chose a red dry erase marker. And the shape of the words resembled a heart.


I look in your eyes and finally relize
That all I can see in you is me
I tug you close and then I find that
Only roses are in your mind I stroke
Your skin It feels so pure cause it
Feels softer than kittens fur
All I need to do is
Look in your eyes
Then I find
Everything I
Need to
