Little Boy Blue


the melody harmonized in Harlem
his groomed afro embedded in mellow
passion, brief, yet an everlasting hum

on the keys and off the keys fell stardom
he played it, wrote the verse, sang it, became
the melody harmonized in Harlem

he took in breaths, not bitter not sweet, some
riff in rhyme, upbeat pace and uttermost
passion, brief, yet an everlasting hum

steady groove to his loosely locked lips, charms
fingers touched the keys, streaming for rhythm
the melody harmonized in Harlem

a star's cloud rose, glittering golden sun
the natural soul of his sax-o-phone
passion, brief, yet an everlasting hum

blues tried what he dreamt and dreamt what he tried
it can't make sense till blues jazzy beat cried
the melody harmonized in Harlem
passion, brief, yet an everlasting hum
