Jacqueline Du Pre - Poem by jerry hughes

She was the instrument
A cello gripped by her thighs
And warmed by her loins
Sang as no other
And Elgar was there

    Allie, even in crumbling ruin he has to agree with you - that girl sure could pluck a banjo... (Report) Reply

    Du Pre Plays Elgar

    She warmed the Davidov
    between her thighs,
    like a lover;
    fingers yielding
    in sensuous vibrato,
    blond head tossing,
    face like an Angel.

    Never did Elgar
    sound like this...

    I guess those who live together share the same creative spirit. Love you and this. Allie xxxx
