Walking down the street, the Piano merchant stopped and stared appalled.
A grand piano stood there, looking forlorn and in danger of falling apart. Someone had filled it with soil and various plants, mainly daisies and lavender.
It broke his heart to see this once impressive instrument that must have produced fine music, invoking a wonderful spirit of harmony and beauty, reduced to being a plant pot.
Moving closer, he saw above the keys what he knew would be there, the name ‘Erard’. It was on a Piano such as this that the great Beethoven and Liszt once played.
