Nay, it was just that I

John Bjarne Grover

TEQ #398
Exodus 15:2
  עזי וזמרת יה

Nay, it was just that I,
with money-hay: It was solved,
and his exquisite guitar is unbanishing.

Nay, honestly, were out to blame.
You remember me?
Many have bounced to mansion in nineteenfortythree.

Just borrow his tip
for all the garfish:
It is not the same.


From my 'TEQ' = 'The Endmorgan Quartet', the seventh book "A sister of Toukhraud". I wrote the poem on 1 january 1999. (See also this poem written on the same day).

The Holy Bible, New International Version, International Bible Society 1984 translates Exodus 15.2: "The LORD is my strength and my song".

Source for the hebrew parallel text is Biblia Hebraica, Hooght/Hahn, Lipsiae 1839.

I refer also to Chopin op.10 no.6.
