From: Andantino,  
Play it again, Katsumi. And she does,
As if arranging flowers:
The echo where you never quite expect it.
I wake in hospital. My mother's here

 
Unless I am very mistaken, Clive has actually been inspired by write this poem by the playing of the 17 year old Rachel Cheung, who played Schubert piece in the second stage of last year's last year's Leeds International Pianoforte Competition in which she took fifth place Rachmaninov: Concerto no. 2 in C minor, op. 18.

Pedants' Corner - A pity that Standpoint illustrated 'Andantino' with the wrong movement from the Schubert sonata.

I not sure that the person who combinded this with this - or something like them -was thinking that anyone would notice or even care.

Could Katsumi be a reference to Katsumi Kelly, Red Buttons' doomed Japanese wife in the Marlon Brando film Sayonara (he mused idly)?
