Minor Key

by Mary Brunini McArdle

Quietly let us tread
Toward the valley of the violets,
Playing music in a minor key
On our clarinets and flutes.
So soft a fantasy enchanted,
The floating notes before us
Lead us to the anticipated vista.
Still with music in a minor key
As we approach, the dusky sky
Is banked with lavender clouds;
A field of flowers blooms
With transeunt melody.
