My Mozart Rondo
John I. Blair
A Mozart rondo Iíve been playing
More than fifty years
Accuses me again from my piano rack,
Reminding me how often Iíve abused it.
Iíll launch into the starting chords,
Rush along for several frantic bars,
Then get my fingers tangled
On the first chromatic run.
Iíll cuss and fumble to the repetition,
Take it from the top,
Then blow the entire piece
The second time!
But I know I shouldnít fuss,
For how many things in life
Will afford me endless ops
To do them over?
