The sound the Lenny and his wooden instrument filled the auditorium and entered the ears and hearts of all those present. With each pass of the bow, the strings sang a song that brought delight to his audience. Lenny played his song with grace, power, and flawless execution.
Mr. Trumbo nodded his head in approval while standing just out of view from the audience. Ms. Richards broke her own class rule to tell her students sitting closest to her, “This is the perfect song.” Lenny’s classmates looked with amazement and admiration at the sight and sound of Lenny playing his violin. Miguel thoroughly enjoyed watching his friend play with all his heart and soul on a stage in front of all those people.
Notes: You are reading an excerpt from my 1st children’s picture book, Violen. Violen is a story about a young boy who has an extraordinary gift and passion to play the violin. I will be sharing a page or two a day. Follow along, and if you like my story, please tag your friends or share a link of this post. Thanks for your support. Image shot and edited by me.
