Please Take My Words
by Lucy Miller Murray

Please take my words
And turn them into song,
Do not leave them in a dusty drawer
For someone else to find
When we are done.

Please take my words
And turn them into song—
Give them your long crescendos,
Your subtle harmonies,
And your gentle ritards.

Please take my words
And turn them into song,
And if you do,
I shall be a child
Let loose among bells.
