1. a literary, musical, or artistic piece consisting wholly or chiefly of motifs or techniques borrowed from one or more sources.
2. an incongruous combination of materials, forms, motifs, etc. taken from different sources; hodgepodge.
At Real Toads Fireblossom asked us to repost one of our poems. She said something about choosing one of our best and give it another ride around the web track. I didn't know about best, but I chose this one because I actually wrote one with some rhyming that I thought worked pretty well. I am no fan of writing rhyme because I am not good at it. Every attempt sounds odd to me because it reads like...well, like I was simply trying to find words to rhyme. So with this one I give my pen a high five for effort!

The Blackbird, also called the Black Stone Violin, is a full-size playable violin made of black diabase after drawings by Antonio Stradivari (Stradivarius), but with technical modifications to allow it to be played. The violin was conceived and designed by the Swedish artist Lars Widenfalk. It was named the Blackbird after theCommon Blackbird (Turdus merula) because of its colouring. Stradivarius himself often gave his violins names related to birds.
