Hiding a hint of melody
In the free-wheeling ramble
Of the piano’s opening phrases

It’s a pitter pat preview like
Kelly’s singing steps as he
Splashes through a street of rain

It’s a long drawn out unraveling
Of the tune on Ray Charles’ piano
Before he shouts out a bluesy version
Of our patriotic America the Beautiful
