Aesthetic Realism Online Library Poetry by Martha Baird

    The Imaginary Mrs. Beethoven

    "Yes, my husband loves music, but I don't know very much
         about it."
    "Oh, Beethoven, you're throwing water on the floor again; you'll
         drive me crazy."
    "Play it to me some other time, dear, I'm busy now."
    "Well, another symphony? That's nice."

    You think you are better than
    The imaginary Mrs. Beethoven?
    Go slow, there.
    The imaginary Mrs. Beethoven
    Is like most people.
