A love in verse

The Old Piano

Performed by
David Tuffnell

The tears I’d gladly pay

To hear you play once more!

- I shed them anyway

Each time I listen for

Your fingers on the keys-

The thought can only tease

The rain may fall all day

The sun burn up the blue

The years may fall away

(They’ll lead me nearer you)

But always I’ll recall

Singing down the hall

That perfection of tone

And sometime hesitation

That was your very own

An almost meditation

On the pain and sweetness

When love seals life’s completeness



You’re out there in the peopled world

Bobbing heads crowd your fair face

You sit in tunnels and in buses...

Bus 391

Hello, my light! The 391 is hurrying,

The trees whizz by the window and the air

(Conditioned) is quite cool...
