dVerse Chants

Detail of a list of corrections sent by Beethoven to Ferdinand Ries with his letter of 19 March 1819

A Slash of Ink

that note was
a bee sting. was
heated and burnt.
was stabbed.
was sharp.
hung. unstrung. undone.
one correction.
a turn. returned.
again, burnt by
a critic’s
pen.

Responding to dVerse Poet’s prompt “The Chant”. I didn’t manage the chant element well, so I’ll not post back a link of their site. I can think of no good reason for people to read something that’s not what it is. Nevertheless, writing it did amuse me a bit.
