Lyrics by Richard Schletty

Bright Yellow

I eat a banana
in warm sunlight
A midsummer moment
That feels so right

Bright yellow!
Bright yellow!

An oblong fruit
A golden sight
A bite fantastic
Downed with delight

Bright yellow!
Bright yellow!

It's quite appealing
Noon or night
It keeps your stomach
Fairly quiet

Bright yellow!
Bright yellow!

Honored
Andre, I am so honored to have your orchestral setting of my poem performed live by the Octava Chamber Orchestra in Washington state. The male soloist gets high marks for his singing.

Do you think anyone has ever eaten a banana at an orchestral performance? :-)

First time for everything!
It's a great performance by the singer and the orchestra did a great job. Remember the 1st piano version of this song? It was only 1 page or so. The orchestral score kept on growing though and it became the longest song in the collection!
