Xylophone


AtoZ2019X

Its April of 2019 and Day 24 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: xylophone
Language: Greek
Meaning: a musical instrument in the percussion family

Poem:
wooden bars,
little to long.
mallets,
the imprints.
stories,
little to long.
life,
a xylophone.

Interpretation:
Mallets produce music on varying sized wooden bars on a xylophone.
Life has stories. The stories, little to long, usually are the music of life. Here mallets is a metaphor for many – they bring music. What do we hit for the music?
