Best Daver Austin Poems

+ Fav Poet


She has a bracelet on    Hear it?
When she tells her friend how concert-hip she is it
Quaking little cupids. trolls and other creatures come together
   and they
On the brighter side, she's taking off her hat,
    but when she does it's tutti-forte
I'm betting at the softest point of Weber's overture she'll
    consult her program and it will
Oh, damn!
It's in my ears    in my head    like Robert Schumann
Get a grip    The concertmaster has come on    takes a bow
    looks to see who makes a
The oboe sounds an A
The winds begin to tune
The brass have heard her song and laugh
Horns    trumpets    trombones give a mighty blast!
And here come the strings    all 62    pull there bows
    but still can hear that
Now    at last    her tintinnabulation's lost in thunderous
    applause    Maestro has come on
I do believe he knows the lass
He throws to her a little bow    a kiss
Jingle! Jingle! Jingle! Jingle! Jingle!
