String Haiku

April 30, 2010 15:24

Strings old, cash too low

Six months, twelve months, eighteen months

Dominants last long

Man say “Hey, you’re hired”

Money returns, we’re all glad

Restaurants and new strings

String Mall makes good deal

Dominants on lower three

Choose your own E string

Wrapped package arrives

Feels like Christmas time again


Old tired strings find trash

AGED means change in that order

Silver winks at me

Pirastro for E

Comes with little plastic tube

Beats Dominant E

Peg dope is my friend

Turn peg toward you not away

Maybe backwards – oops

One string change per day

Tighten too far, string goes snap

Fiddle now ready

Bow coaxes sound out

Stretching string makes mournful moan

Chromatic tuner

Writing string haiku

Brings home warm fuzzy feeling

Violin and me
