The Note

THE NOTE

I do not know
How to begin
To put the note on the page

I know how to draw
The vertical stem;
Attach it to the bulb
Black-ink it in

F and G clefs
Form watery from the pen
The curves and swirls
Cleaving the stave

But how do I begin
To find the note
That rings like you rang in me?
