Alexander / Robinson Guitar Duo

The Alexander / Robinson Guitar Duo - Poem

After our performance at the Wiltshire Jazz Festival 2009 one member of the audience was inspired to write a poem which she has kindly allowed us to reproduce here.


Jazz Guitars at Dinton

The drops fall on my forehead

Acid drops, beads of sweetness

The notes spring joyously

We take the magic in through our skin.

At the barn's open door

In the moist evening

Foxgloves rise to the

Green abandon of wisteria

The birdsong through the rain

Not as piercing, less delightful

Than the bright essence showering us.

We lift our faces to it.


For Charles Alexander and Andy Robinson
