The Bow Frog, was inspired by the photograph below: Which Way to Carnegie Hall? by David Bowers.


By Linda Eve Diamond

Music, itself, wears a mask and plays
at the Venetian carnival masquerade.

Sounds of pleasure, song and soul
enchant old violins, body and bow.

Leading to the great crescendo…

The ebony bow frog breathes and turns green,
perched on his bow log, he starts to dream.

Then he hops a quick staccato jig on the strings,
makes up his own little ribbity ditty and sings.

Inspiring life with its charms and masquerades,
music delights to see the bow frog dance away.
