Poem Written during Chopin Etudes

Etudes by Miriam Sagan

frozen waterfall=silence

cumulus moon
white keys’ notes
fall like snow

reflected in the opened
piano lid
a city of windows
and caged canaries

just tell
me what I want
to know
or leave me alone


This was written during a Chopin concert at The Lensic. I scribbled in the dark. To read the whole poem, background, and some great links, go to a very interesting blog on music: http://thesongis.blogspot.com/2015/07/miriam-sagan-and-chopin.html
