Theodora and Henry


Theodora & Henry to Grammy & Granddad’s after school 2007

about Theo:

When she plays his Little prelude in E minor
and loves the music of Bach
as I sit in the yellow room with two pianos
with her teacher
Can you close your eyes as I do
catch the sunlight streaming in
warming your inner gaze
and marvel at the sophistication of her playing
the communication of sheer beauty…

about Henry:

Hands-crossing arpeggios he plays
with joy
as much as any piece of
Bach or Mozart or Schumann he knows
Beethoven yet to come though
perhaps this will change his inclination
perhaps not
my quirky in-his-own-world
musician son…
