Elegy in Blue Poem by Paula Mckay

  Paula McKay

Elegy in blue

a horn is blowin' slowly down the hall

an' I remember how we'd hug an' sway

you'd say     that trumpeter can play

an' close your eyes   lettin' the music fall

into you     night an' day     jus' the blues

I got another man     know you'd understan' 

I got the rent to pay     but this ol' room

ain't like when you was here     no heat 

no moon shinin' on your face     you   sleepin' 

close     breathin' in my ear 

but   blowin' from some place

there's soul

(c) Paula McKay
