Subject(s): Kreisler, Fritz (1875-1962); Violins


SELL me a violin, mister, of old mysterious wood.
Sell me a fiddle that has kissed dark nights on the forehead where men
kiss sisters they love.
Sell me dried wood that has ached with passion clutching the knees and
arms of a storm.
Sell me horsehair and rosin that has sucked at the breasts of the
morning sun for milk.
Sell me something crushed in the heartsblood of pain readier than ever
for one more song.
