"If You Are But a Dream"
"Sunday, Monday and Always"  as "Dick Haymes, Dick Todd and Como." 
     "Why should it get their goat, each time I bend a note, Dick Haymes, Dick Todd and Como?"
     "The fact that girlies scream they say will bring me grief / but if they ever stop I'll find that I'm back on relief"
     "Every time I sing, I'm compared with Bing, by Dick Haymes, Dick Todd, and Como?"
Brahms's Lullaby

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

from New and Selected Poems by David Lehman
