Michael Edwards



As I slowly walked along

a stranger asked in accent strong

‘Be that the moon that I see there

high above us in the air?’

and I replied: ‘ I cannot tell

for I’m a stranger here as well’.

    Yet another first smile of the day MIchael, thank you.

    That artwork is brilliant.

    • Michael Edwards

      Thanks Andy - despite the notes being round the wrong way? Artistic licence and all that!!

      • Goldfinch60

        If the notes are the wrong way round I call it jazz. You cannot play a wrong note in jazz as "It is the note that you felt was needed at that time" I have played may like that.

        wonderful Michael, the 'playwright line' (like) words and artwork, has me imagining a scene from 'Jeeves and Wooster' when they visit New York, lol

            If the notes are back to front do you play the music in reverse?

              Good one Michael, and I do like your painting too. But throw in another of your landscapes once in a while, I am very partial to them!

              • Michael Edwards
