Tinkling the Ivories


A Tomb (Image credit: KL Caley)

A famous composer, passed away

They say he died on stage

He had an illustrious and varied career

for one so long in age

The memorial, it was a musical one

and fellow musicians they wept

as they reminisced on their old pal and chum

and the musical appearances kept

He was buried down deep in the graveyard

alongside artistic friends (and some foes)

and given a quite comfy coffin

so he’d sleep from his head to his toes

but late last night, something happened

to wake all the birds in the woods

as composers below – they put on a show

performing their musical goods
