Typewriter Symphony

Borge played
with fingers splayed.  

Not one key stuck 
Or gone amuck.

    Victor was a great musician and comedian. Simply put he was brilliant as is your poem. Short and to the point. Kilmer

    Dear Kathryn - Wonderful succint tribute. I remember Victor Borge from my childhood, and your poetry helps keep his memory alive for me. Thank you for stopping by to read 'Who Am I to Say?" Thank you for letting me know the effect had on you. I appreciate your feedback so much. - Gail

    So cute, Kathryn! We once went to one of his live performances in the city north of us. Still in his 80's....he was so funny, talented, and such an underrated pianist!! Unwavering energy still going strong! (ps...I am so grateful for your very sweet comment on my poem "Hugs" makes writing one little poem, worth more than money could pay, if someone feels it the way I meant it. Thank you for letting me know. :)

    If this is Victor - I loved his routines. Don't remember the typewriter, but it must have been a gas. Oh, and the balance was because of contemplating trying to cross the log in the dark. Love, daver

    Hi YOU! One day you'll have to show me how to write an entire story in 12 words. How fresh, funny and nostalgic. Smiles from Cyndi
