"This Grand Old Piano"

a poem by Genevieve Mika

This old grand piano stood weathered and worn,
Remembering her finer days,
When classical music resounded aloud,
As fingers on ivory keys played-

This old grand piano stood weathered and worn,
Wishing for her maestro’s return,
But heartache and sadness grew greater each day,
And at times she felt bitterly spurned-

This old grand piano stood weathered and worn,
Alone and dismayed with despair,
Then hope was instilled one morning in May,
When a tuner came in and repaired-

This old grand piano stood weathered and worn,
As a craftsman walked through the door,
With loving skill he began renovation-
' Til splendor was fully restored-

This grand old piano no longer weathered and worn,
Reminisced about days of old,
The auctioneer’s voice rang out loud and clear,
“This grand old piano now SOLD”

I love #5 the piano is quite dramatic and moody. The way the buses are painted there warms my heart. I wonder what would happen if buses here were painted with something similar.

You thoroughly impress me Antonio. The perfect poem followed by Edith's tongue rolling song, and then some really cool photos. Love the vitrola. Btw my favorite Edith song is "La Vie En Rose", followed by " No Je Ne Regrette Rien". Now I have to add this one to my list as well smile
