Piano at 75
John I. Blair
Each night I sit down on the bench
And play piano for a little while.
Pain in my back keeps me
From sitting longer;
Three quarters of a century
Have left my fingers stiff.
But the music still sounds good;
My body still remembers
How to stroke the keys, reverberate the strings,
Bring beauty from this wooden box.
So Iím smiling
When I limp away to other things.
