TRUMPET SOLO

by Robin Boothroyd

Trumpet Solo

Last night I had a dream
That you had a dream
That I ran out of words

I went down to the beach
Put a trumpet to my lips
And played to the waves

My song was a solo
An improvised solo
An unaccompanied improvised solo

It told them I had a dream
That you had a dream
That I ran out of words

And the waves went on breaking
While a sleek yacht
Sliced through their crests

Towards a different horizon
