Prelude’s Valentine

Another good reason
To be reincarnated is
If you missed Bach’s
Prelude in E-flat Minor
As played on a Saturday
Morning on a not-quite
Broken-in piano and a
Woman in a silk gown
Accompanies each tone
With her flowing body
A butterfly in a garden
While everyone in the room
Is weeping inside up to the
Final and only major chord
Which having seized your life
Gently gives it back again
