A Poem For 8.22.2015

Updated on August 22, 2015

The Poem!

So today is Eight Twenty-Two, Two Thousand and Fifteen.

That makes it only Sixty-Nine days until Halloween.

I mention a well-known holiday because August hasn't any.

I think I'll make one up although you may think I'm a ninny.

Since Claude Debussy was born this day in Eighteen Sixty-Two

I say we honor him today with a great big hullabaloo!

We can play "Clair de Lune" as loud as we possibly caun

And then listen to "Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun"!

So I hereby officially decree today to be "Debussy Day".

And on that note, I note that I have nothing more to say.

Clair de Lune

Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun
