The Violin Man

Dan Williams

The tired eyes reflected in the river water

let him see the reason why he was afraid;

they could see no life worth living without her

just like what the man with the violin said.


His tired ears don’t hear the songs that hold the answer;

it gets drowned out by cries for help he thinks he hears.

They remind him he never really had a chance there,

so now the reason why  is crystal clear.


Tired brain puts off dealing with it one more time;

just means another piper won’t get paid.

Another poet will have forgotten what should rhyme

with what the man with the violin said.
