dediéé à Серге́й Васи́льевич Рахма́нинов

Blue moons be for you, Серге́й,
in your heaven now!

Oh, they’ll be so
for the sweet Jazz
you made our earts swing to
ever so delicately
and because you made
us poets dance
to your piano’s
romantic liltings.

For that we owe you
love eternal
and you shall have it anytime:
