Artist's Description

This is one of the flowers from my show and poems for her.

A little story about school and one of the adventures of a child’s first instrument.
We had to play in the school band everyone had to.
So this was the day we were all suppose to pick out our first instrument.

I didn’t want to be the last to pick an instrument.
But by the time my name came up the best ones where all gone!
I wanted to play the trumpet like Louis Armstrong!
And practiced with my voice real deep like Louie always did.
I had all types of special ways I was gonna hold it.
With a napkin like Louie did while acting hip and cool.
And then I stand there very cool as if I was on stage.
I’d take a bow to the applause and wave my napkin at them!
I’d roll my eyes like Louie did and laugh out “here’s to you”!
I had it all planned out in my head as each one pick his favorite.
And as Susan picked the violin and Barry wanted drums.
Then Karen had a heart attack if someone wanted to play flute.
And big Bob was telling me that he was gonna play the sax.
And by the time they got to me my instrument was gone!
The only thing that they had left was a six foot tall base!
I looked at it, it looked at me it was the taller of us two!
My teacher said to me Davie boy this will remain in school!
I could Not believe my luck, you know what this good fortune means?
That lovely base with the heavy case meant I didn’t have to take it home!
Oh God I couldn’t believe my luck I didn’t have to practice!
