My Cello

I love to play my cello
It is cheery, warm, and mellow 
It makes a beautiful sound 
In tones of red and green and brown. 

The cello is like a diary 
Where I can go to pour out my heart 
Thoughts of happy, sad, or fiery 
In the the cello they play their part. 

All of these sounds contribute 
To the cello I love so much 
They all chip in to play their part 
And have such an elegant touch.
