Tortoise Shell Lyre

Eons Ago,

A cosmic string echoed.

From it came a soul.
However,

The cosmic soul.

Was all alone.
So,

it struck.

The cosmic string.
From it,

came a flash.

Followed by a bang.
However,

the striking of the string.

Awoken the Abyss.
Who,

wished to break the string.

Ending all existence.
That’s when,

The great soul.

Took the Cosmic String.
Which,

he gave to Hermes.

Too craft an instrument.

 

So,

on the day of his birth.

Hermes built the Tortoise Shell Lyre.
Who then,

gave it to his Brother.

The Mighty Apollo.
However,

on a trip to Earth.

It was dropped by Apollo.
Later,

to be discovered.

By Homer.
Who used it,

to teach his Bards

And recite his poems.
Next,

it fell into the grasp.

Of Pythagoras.
Who used it,

to understand the universe.

Through the magic of mathematics.
Regardless,

of how this story goes.

The words within this poem.
It has,

this story.

Some wisdom.
For,

I would be a liar.

When it comes to the Lyre.
To say,

it has not been sought.

For generations by Musicians.
However,

I know something.

They know not.
That the Tortoise Shell Lyre,

is not just found anywhere.

It is located in the heart.
