For André Rieu on his 70th Birthday

"Mozart spent his days
drinking wine and
making love to ladies why do we play
his music with faces
like we are already dead?"

No more talk of "dumbing down".
The classical world is coming round
to the joy of the melody,
to the spirit of the dance.

My violin, a lyrical lover
making the music of romance.
