Goin’ In The Bach Door
For J. S. Bach and Esther Margaret Ayers
In a century you could not have imagined
that I once regularly played the music of
J. S. Bach when I was working at a Boston
classical music radio station.
In two centuries you could not imagine that
my wife and I—on one of our many trips to
Deutschland—found ourselves in Eisenach,
Germany, in the home where Bach was born.
In three centuries you could not imagine that
a wonderful woman (a hostess or docent) not
only was our guide but played some of Johann’s
tunes on an original clavier and a harpsichord.
In four centuries you could not imagine I would
create a watercolor painting of the Bach Haus.
