FREDERIC CHOPIN


















THE PIANO POET

World Greatest Composer

Two hundred years ago a child was born,
To a noble Chopin’s family home
He was born in Warsaw, Poland
To a French father and a Polish mother,
They had three daughters and a son,
He soon became a famous one.

At six years of age, he played first concert
at seven, he composes his own first genre,
and Frederic was a gentle talented young man.
He played piano, the music he wrote
Lives today; he soon became a shining beacon
Perhaps love, to those who get to know him.

Composing music, a song on the wind, Etudes,
Polonaise, Waltz, Mazurkas, Sonatas, Nocturnes,
All these pieces are famous and still played today
The entire world loves Chopin piano music.
Followers play the piano music on Concerts
competing with best Mazurkas, Chopin delights.

His life was relatively short; he became lonely
and ill, Nostalgia’s, for his beloved Warsaw home,
His heart remained in Paris, his father's homeland.
The Composer’s Birthday marked around the World
Because his music, poetry of piano, music so precious,
A medicine for many hearts, best pieces ever found.

TALL MOUNTAIN












"THE EVEREST OF LIFE"


Once upon a time, her climbing began
every step she took to climb higher
was harder with time, having family and kids
She worked away from home for basic needs.

It was much harder when divorce hit home,
for she had to raise the kids alone,
the hardship to bear; fewer know, only those
experienced a life-path, she was going through?

The hardest and more difficult time
Was yet to come, when late November evening
She was driving home; another vehicle hit her,
Car accident that caused,"the Life Mountain," grow tall.

Five years passed since she put her life on hold
however, it’s all about climbing, getting to the top.
She whispered prayers when health became frail
, as there was no other medical help avail.

Her Life Mountain grew bigger every passing year
She held the hopes that someday will reach the top
The "Everest of her life," seems taller and steep.
Climbing the "Life Mountain," sets her face in tears.
