I played the piano at
The Farmers’ Market –
And spread Bach’s and Beethoven’s
Gospel this Sunday morning

Notes to this poem…
I only have a keyboard at home on which to practice, and it’s not the same as a real piano, so I try to play on a real piano when I can. The Farmers’ Market has one so when there isn’t someone busking near it, I jump on just to play for fun. I can only play 2.5 tunes right now, but if you get the right tunes, you can impress! The videos below show you the tunes. That’s not me and far better than I can play it, but I get enough for the gist of the pieces with the right notes that most would still be able to enjoy the pieces. Many even tell me they enjoyed it! 🙂
First movement of the piece below that runs till about 6:45
And the first 2.5 minutes of so of the piece below, done a little differently with one hand where there is duplication (mostly) for more clarity in the notes.
The W-series poems comprise mostly of haiku or tanka composed during walks I took on the portion of Halifax’s waterfront known as the Harbourwalk, in 2018, when the Seabridge was in place.
