Gray Music Poem by Sandra Fowler

Gray Music

Rating: 5.0

You wrote your Yiddish signature in rain.
I could not match it in a thousand years.
Old words are classic to my memory.
Because of you, my feet have wings this day.

Gray music paints a picture of rare worth,
A Slavic image of an April mood,
Breaching the barrier of your last breath,
I should not wonder, Friend, you said it would.

'For a poet who was born in April and died in April'.

I don't know if the poem completely fleshes out the first two lines of the first stanza. I love those two lines: 'You wrote your Yiddish signature in rain./ I could not match it in a thousand years.'

Music is spirit preserved for eternity. The color of slavic music, their words are in their music.
