Stranger's DuetA young girl of fifteen yearsWas playing a sorrowful piece;Up and down the keyboardHer fingers tromped.But the world was a busy placeShe was surrounded by people, yetNobody stopped to listenAnd soHer soul beat went unheard.An old man of fifty yearsWas playing a hopeful piece;Side to side across the stringsHis bow slid.But the world was a lonely placeThe streets were bright and wide, yetNobody passed by to listenAnd soHis soul beat went unheard.Two peopleFrom opposite sides of the worldYoung or oldIgnored or aloneThe lucky and the unluckyNothing in common, exceptTheir soul beats...gone unheard.You could almost sayThat they were playing...A Stranger's Duet.
