We breathe through the harmonica,
Our breath gives life to the music,
Without eyes or fingers
we search and probe its
with our mind and tongue,
We surround it with our hands;
embrace it with our lips;
from the world.
We are deceived by its simplicity,
moulded by its trickery,
daunted by its complexity,
joyful at its capacity
