Ukulele by Siansunflower

If I were a tree?
Which would I be?
That one is easy-
something in-between
a willow and a baobab.
What if I were an instrument?
Hmm, let’s see…
There are the percussions
But I’ve been beaten before,
both with hands and sticks
and I didn’t quite enjoy that.
Then, there’s the brass and the woodwinds
But I’d rather not
be fooled around with
by something as intimate as lips.
That leaves us with strings.
Violins are quite high strung
I’ll go with something easy-
A ukulele.
Pick at me,
caress me gently
and find what makes me sing
my sweetest sound.
