Niccolo Paganinni - Revised and re-posted

His calloused finger tips caressed the stings with fire one last time
As he played the cords of his emotions with passion as he climbed
A lifetime of memories that night were burned upon the strings
Flames from his soul flew through the coliseum on golden wings
The music of his life touched every heart with the beauty of its sound
And bowing to a roaring ovation...he brought the final curtain down

    Enjoyed mucho, Elaine. Did you know that Paganini would play for the dead in grave yards. He was said to be in league with the devil because he played so well. Truth is...his father made him practice 9 hours a day, that being the reason for his virtuosity. BIG LOVE, daver
