Wolfgang Mozart Paints in Tones

Wolfgang Mozart wolfed in haste,
A poetic sonata serene,
Harmonizing in good taste—
Finally finishing in canteen,
For a fix of caffeine.
Wolfgang Mozart makes no bones,
The audience not realizing,
He painted harmonic tones,
Spellbinding, yet not surprising,
Tunes so mesmerizing.

    "finally finishing in canteen, for a fix of caffeine" HA! This is a great way to describe his music. A pianist with too much coffee ... staccato on overdrive. Really digging the rhymes ... you expressed yourself so well in this charming piece. Well done.
