A Banjo Poem

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

The Banjo

by Boyd Hudgens
The Banjo is an odd thing,

Four longs and one short string.

It matches the fingers on my hand,

That's natural I guess, made by man.

And when I pluck it,

Not saying a word,

A beautiful sound

Is immediately heard.


The notes run together,

Lickety split.

Eighth and sixteenth notes,

They never quit.


My mind switches gear,

As a banjo I near.

I can't let it just sit,

I’ll pick it a bit!

As long as my fingers

Will move and bend,

I'll keep on picking

The Banjo, my friend.
