The Echo Of The Classic Voice



After hearing a piece and shutting it in the closet of my head,

After the mark of three full days, its melodies rise.

An art, containing spirit, might make quick, but never be, the dead.

Like a holy corpse, what matters never really dies.

  1. This is so true. I enjoyed your video of Sammy Davis Junior. Talent like that, for example, never really dies. Those of us who enjoyed him while he was here, still enjoy him today.

  2. Yes. I can't think of many who equal him as a virtuoso entertainer. Saw him live once. He just took the hundreds of us along with him -- pure energy.
