Street Musician

William "Bill" Kennedy
of Redding, PA
and talent extraordinary
remembers not
locking his front door
nor knows if it
will ever unlock again.
For the sounds
of the melodies
from the weathered violin
drifting across the canal
echoing off ancient
stone walls in Annecy
make him at home
wherever he plays.


Robert

Excellent. Robert. Musicians, and poets, can be home anywhere. Their home is in their mind.

I met this guy in Annecy, France. He was quite a charactor!!

I didn't know his real name....I made up one and let him read this poem. His face got red and said...."William "Bill" Kennedy..... yeah, that'll work". Then he said as he looked out the window, "You know....it does echo off the stone walls."

He packed his bag and left the Youth Hostel 5 minutes later.
