Long Ago

That tiny toy instrument

Shaped like a French horn

Displayed with a dozen others

We both gave it a squeeze —

But for some reason this

One sounded the best

With its familiar sound

More than a horn

And it took your breath away

And close to tears

At how its cry

Was like our geese

On a little farm

From long ago
