Hidden talents

When I was a kid

I wanted to learn how

to play the piano,

but my parents couldn’t

afford to buy me a

a whole piano,

but they did get me the

piano stool.

So, mostly,

I practiced my posture.


But you know what?

I was good.


part II

And some-times, as I 

would sit there on the piano stool,

I would dream of going

living in the 1920s.


If I could only go back in time,

then I could fulfill my destiny

of becoming a

tin-pan alley songwriter.”


And if I was lucky, and

I worked hard at my craft,

maybe I could get the

great Rudy Vallee

to sing my new hit song,

“Strawberry Fields Forever”

    • Funny! At least you kept playing. I enjoyed your post, too, and should have followed, but I will correct that now. Thanks for reading. Edit: I don’t see a follow button but I saved the site nevertheless.
