|Since I read 'Mozart's Wife' by Juliet Waldron, I can appreciate your poem even more. Thanks. Mozart, like so many superstars today, went overboard big time and probably crammed more wild rides into his brief life than most of us will ever do that live twice or three times his span. I bet he would have been great friends with "The Doors"? Is that the right rock group?|

|I think this world just wasn't big enough for him, nor our timeframe or space. He is one of mankind's biggest travesties which beggars us all in our ignorance of his genius and our loss. Eine Kleine could never be enough, neither such tributes, even were they to flow endlessly from our pens. But all hail to this effort which is as from one Master to another. It takes one to know one! :))|

|Gene - Loved the alternation of genius and perfection with the human imperfections, and the humor. Maybe that's what creativity is: our attempts to transcend the imperfections of being human.|

'till love and fame to nothingness do sink' ...I'm not sure why Keats' words come to mind but they do, even if they don't apply, or do they? I love your telling, the little details and moments made significant and that awful inscription on the stone of a genius, effortless and fluent and troubled. He lives every day with me, it's a compulsion, an unbreakable devotion.

|And she laughed all the way to the bank--Ah, Mozart's Wife! A lovely little reflection on a restless, seductive spirit--still a ghostly Don Giovanni through the rapture of his music.
Per "Amadeus": "Only talent concerns a woman of taste."

|Mozart is and I believe always will be the master of all. They say when he wrote music it was the original only, never a rough draft, now that is true perfection. You do him justice in this magnificent piece so passionately written.
Be always safe,

|Housed and mentored many a lesser genius, but failed to teach my beloved Ludwig anything. Treated as a servant by royalty, his fame far out-reached any aristocrat's of his day, and his music is still loved passionately by millions today.
Great tribute, Gene. :0) --Charlie
(I invite you to read my "Emily" and "Hail to Tchaikovsky" in my classics section.) I love chatting about music. I'm nuts about the stuff!

|He was definately a genius. Beautiful write Gene but also so sad. His music and symphonies are being enjoyed today and he died so unappreciated as did many of the others. Thank you for this touching write. Love, Bonnie|
