Practicin'

It takes a certain discipline
to keep myself a-practicin'.
Of scales and exercises grand,
there never is an end.
*
I find the work is worth my time,
for fingers sure and notes sublime
do clear the cobwebs from my mind.
*
But when the sunshine fair appears,
my eyes will thrill to meet its rays--
against the light within my ears,
it takes a certain discipline
to keep myself from practicin'.
