Anthony Ward


Time and Time Again

Here’s to you My Brubeck!
Don’t ever stop!
Just Take Five
And keep on going.
Keep those keys unlocking
The doors
That welcome us in
With your hospitality
Persuading us
To come back
Time and time again
In order to enjoy
Your burning spirit
Here’s to you Mr Brubeck-
To Take Five!

The Jazz Player

The Jazz player
Is most ALIVE
When working,
Being all the more insipid
When at leisure.
Drinking to become lowly,
Not because he’s fed up,
But because he’s content,
Feeling all the more impassive
When at odds with himself,
Drawing inspiration from the distance
He’s close to.

That’s the Jazz man!
