Fretting or Forgetting?


Fretting or Forgetting?

Sometimes personal choices may be nobody’s business
… after all.

The Cellist
By Joseph DeCamp
1908

Pulling Strings

A symphony cellist named Kate
Discovered her fate far too late.
A little off-key,
With no guarantee,
She never had time for a mate.

So Katie went tugging the string,
Despite her desire for a ring.
She kept perfect time,
Though missing her prime,
And only onstage did she swing.

  1. Fun read. Even the "fretting" is part of stringed music. Love the limerick quality. Thanks for sharing this.
