Chopin in Manchester

Chopin in Manchester

written by: Anna Maria Mickiewicz


He did not like the smog
He did not like the damp English weather
Or overcrowded Manchester

Standing at the lake in Prestwich
I can feel his longing
Far away from home

Music is dripping like rain from his thin fingers rapidly
In the Gentlemen’s Concert Hall

His statue is silent in Manchester
A frail figure
Is it longing for music or for the homeland?
