St Ives

As I was going to St Ives
I met a man with seven wives
Said he, 'I think it's much more fun
Than getting stuck with only one.'

It is the musicality of the telling that makes this piece so moving and yet so joyous at the same time. A beautiful tribute to a dearly loved and respected fellow musician. Sounds like he died as he lived - on a high! love, Allie xxxx
A touching tribute to a long lost friend. It's nice to imagine him still in flight somewhere out in the universe. Old pilots never die, they just fly off into the sunset. Beautiful piece, Robert. Linda
Elegaic, intense and very moving. Your heart is in this one and it shows. You are definately a poet worthy of the name. Regards, Sandra
