Flight of the Bumblebee

Tsung Tsung’s** fingers begin the dance

Calling the magical Swan-Bird

Who is supposed to help the Prince

To visit his father the Tsar

I gape in wonder


 His fingers now talk in rhythm

Will the enchanted bird arrive?

To send the Prince to the Tsar’s court

The Prince is ready to buzz off

I drink the music


The fairy tale door opens wide

The Bird casts her spell

Prince Gvidon sprouts wings

Pianist sets free the bumblebee

 My happy feet dance

*an orchestral interlude written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan (based on a Russian folk tale) composed in 1899-1900.
**an amazing child pianist  
I am not sure if this poem followed any meter…
