Perfect Pitch

A poem of the sounds of life

The voice of a Soprano as she hits the high C
Love birds whistling high in a tree
Church bells chiming at the stroke of noon
Witches screeching out of tune
A batter misses a pitcher’s pitch
Thrown perfectly as if he wished
A concert hall filled with music galore
Who could ever ask for more
Each has its own perfect pitch
As the sewing machine sews stitch after stitch
Like a violin with its finely tuned strings…
