Nancy M. Godfrey

Rookie (Wilmington, Delaware)

Ivory Keys


Her heart is full
As she listens
To the ivory keys.
Symphonic opus
Classical sound
Drifting on memories.
The spirited rush of love
Tragedy of loss
The bright, bold sound of hope.
Her heart is full.
Ivory keys
Play a hungry melody...
Her tear stained eyes see
Beyond life's tragedies.
