Music  that  Rocks  the  Soul  
 
                   By  Jane  Gilgun  
 
Barbara  made  music  
with  the  cello  rested  against  her  left  knee  
As  the  bow  stroked  the  strings  
she  became  the  bow  and  the  instrument  
Music  arose  
Joy  and  fulfillment  
Enchantment    
 
Young  she  is,  at  the  beginning  of  her  adult  life  
much  to  look  forward  to  
She  brings  to  mind  two  other  young  women  
who  were  like  her,  
enchanting,  loved,  tapping  into  the  music  of  the  spheres  
both  dead  by  young  men  
who  wanted  what  the  young  women  had  
 
How  does  it  happen  that  rape  and  strangulation  
arise  in  response  to  beauty  that  rocks  the  soul?  
 
Barbara  continues  to  make  music  
So  do  the  other  young  women
