« A Short, Packed, Serious Argument Against Gym Guilt [by Jennifer Michael Hecht] | Main | A Poem from "It was the season, then." [by Amy Allara] »

April 08, 2010


I have some old "Etudes" - they are a lot of fun to look through! It is fascinating how musical training was viewed as a necessary accomplishment for a fulfilled life, too, rather than as an extracurricular activity, as it too often is seen now.

And if Susie wasn't real, she ought to have been! Go, Susie!

And aren't some of the covers great? Unfortunately, my scanner wasn't big enough to capture the full cover of the one I posted today...

Dear Amy--

A lovely post. You might like these links, to Robert Pinsky's poem, "The Green Piano,",

and to a poem that probably, partly inspired it, D.H. Lawrence's "Piano,",

yours in the common pursuit,


Thanks very much--I look forward to checking out the links...

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
