Chopsticks

Chopsticks

I sit at the piano
Fingering the keys
Hoping to inspire
Some poetry

I wonder if Chopin
Knew at the time
When composing Chopsticks
He wrote it in rhyme

    1. I didn't have that one. I'm not familiar with it but it sounds an awful lot like "I Met a Bear" a song I learned in Girl Scouts. Same tune I'm thinking.

  10. A musician and a poet ... so closely linked IMO.
