Crying in my car by Raymond A. Foss

The words, the colors, the music
cascading over me, a wonder of imagery
the magic of radio
notes drifting in the air
the soul of his music
his gift poured out
into me, my being
feeling more than hearing
the loss to the world
his passing, his life
still yet cut short
no matter his age
something of beauty remaining
in the notes, the melody
the life he leaves for us

“Remembering Composer Leon Kirchner
The music world is mourning the death of Leon Kirchner, one of America’s greatest composers. Kirchner died yesterday at his home in New York, the cause was heart failure. We revisit a conversation that Robin Young had with Kirchner before he was honored at Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum earlier this year.”
