Tinkling The Ivories

This piano waited ten years for someone to be able to play it. Sanded, polished and cared for as best as two non-musicians could, I swear the keys tinkled with excitement when The Boy started having lessons.

Sometimes the simplest sounding piece of music is actually deceptively difficult, like Calon Lân. He learnt this within a fortnight for the school's Eisteddfod competitions, and I think it sounds utterly beautiful; like a lullaby.

I will keep this child playing, regardless of how much he may complain in the future, because being able to play the piano is an amazing and beautiful talent.
