FREDERIC AND ME

 

Young Frederic, Mrs. Chopin said,

was brilliant as a child,

Even though piano lessons

drove the family wild.

At seven he began the first

of many genius phases—

That was when he started writing

all those polonaises.

 

I’m sure that I could never be

as smart as all those folks.

I thought that polonaise

was what we put on artichokes.

That’s why you’ll find his statue

in a Warsaw hotel lobby

While I’m in Cupertino

writing verses for a hobby.
