3/4 is more

Than most can make  . . .

Of a timed experience!

Even Johann Strauss Sr. at his best "piano"

Was no match to J.S. Jr.'s "fortes"!

To score . . . If you please . . .

The Danube at its bluest.

And Bat,  Spring Voices,

At a Gallop -

While Diplomatically hailing

Hungary's Gypsy Baron's

Love Messages i.e.

Praising Women & Artists

(His special Joys in Life!)

While Accelerating Johann's own search

A Thousand times a Night  -

For the Musik of the Spheres -

Junior's Heart's Delight!!!

So,  Take Aim!

And March Count Radetzsky Home

To "Goodbyes & Goodnights".

After all!  You Only Live Once!

So say the Publicists -

But the Seers Declare

In a Letter to the Editors -

"Don't Forget to Dot the "I"!!

As in:  "Yours truly,  Ich bin Johann Strauss, Jr."
