Maybe this should be put in the program notes???
hehe. Who cares about when this set is written, or Tchaikovsky for that matter, just stick my lame poem in there..
The Italian Ditty
I once heard a piece
called, “The Italian Song.”
It's written by Tchaikovsky--
and is not very long.
if you hear it you might like it,
so give it a try.
What is the worst that can happen?
“I don’t like it!” You cry.
Very good! For the worse, it's as simplistic as what I just wrote, but for the better, a nice (albeit minor) addition.
The only thing I would change is the title, from the word "ditty," to "song."
It is true, this piece is not very long! In fact, were you going for saying this to draw attention to the fact that the poem is not long either? If so, that's a stroke of genius..
Maybe you should write my book, you could be a ghostwriter
In my project, I am trying to blur the lines between writing music and writing poetry. Yours is a great example, I think, of an Ossia...
