(dedicated to Mr. Michael Franks, a great Jazz singer)

short
song
simple
character

the tone
instrument
melodious
spontaneous

romance
elegance
ene rgetic
magnetic

great sorrow
a timeless love
strong emotions
the great emotional

dramatic effects
a very virtuosic one
embellished variations
overwhelming happiness

finally united for good
celebrates new-found love
moved by the plight of the lovers
appears singing the joyful stanzas

(inspired by Edgar Degas' The Singer with the Glove)
