The Piano

The piano was created by an Italian named Bartolomeo Cristofori. The date  of creation is believed to be somewhere in the mid 1600’s.

When my heart is unsettled,
And tossed about the seas of emotions,
My fingers go to the keyboard,
Where my soul bleeds the pain,
Into the notes,
Into the music,
And I seek peace,
Among dead composers.


  1. Very nice done Ruby.....compliments.

  2. I just can't get enough of your pictures. keep them coming.

  3. I never allow a day to go by without listening to the piano although I don't play (I realised when I was very young that I'd never reach a standard that would satisfy me because I don't have the ability) and I can feel every emotion that there is through the music.

  4. I did not know that about pianos. Hmm, you learn something new every day!

  5. Neat how you combined the piano with the poem of how music is so soothing.

  6. Never new the piano was THAT OLD... :)

  9. Did you draw that piano Ruby? Good one. The piano can make beautiful music with the right musician. Do you play it? - Dave

  10. Yes, I did draw it, but unfortunately, I never took lessons :(

  11. Thanks bloglings for your compliments!!

    That is great GB, maybe you could begin playing again even if you r not satisfied with your skills, you might be surprise yourself!

  12. I just joined a band after a long layoff (I'm the keyboard player and co lead guitarist). The words are true and I often find myself seeking solace in playing music.

    Happy New Year, Miss Ruby!!

  13. hi Ruby, your drawing of the piano is wonderful and the poem made me feel to miss my old piano that i may have forgotten how to play ... i found you through Ed's after reading your comment and because what you said resonated with me i thought i will come and say 'hi'
