Tombstone Tales: Tomb of Mozart

The clock ticks away the hour

of midnight and in a web

of white light a piano

is playing a little

night music:


But where is the pianist?

Look at the keys, they go up

and down as the Rondo dances

through the deserted street

with this Lord and his Lady

dressed only

in her jewellery.

And the clock ticks away

the hour of midnight

when they jump

in the canal

as they always did

and always do

and forever
