The winds of change are blowing through Vail
Where is Mickey, we hear you wail?
After 30-odd years pushing the keys
Every night trying to please
Pushed aside by the gods of money
Old clientele feel it’s just not funny!
Where is the music that we crave?
At Mickey’s Bar it was not a rave
Hits from the past and big shows
Mickey played them all as only he knows
At the Lodge he’s played his last song
No more will we hear the music so fine and strong
But the loss to the Lodge is the Vista’s gain
Down Arrowhead way we will fly again
Mickey’s piano will ring out true
Country and Western, maybe some blues
We thank you, Mickey, for sharing your gift
With every note we are given a lift
Up the chairs and down Genghis Khan
We will always remember “Vail’s Piano Man.”

The Bookworm presents the Local Author Showcase featuring nine passionate Colorado writers April 13 at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $10 at the Bookworm-and online at bookwormofedwards.com. Meet showcase authors Karin Weber and-KK Cherry. Cherry is the author of “Meaning of Mountains.” Born “with mountains in the marrow of her bones,” the artist and poet believes strongly in the inherent language of landscape – a landscape there for all of us, though listened to far too seldom. While her work reflects an awareness, an appreciation and a reverence for nature … she states in her personal philosophy, “I believe it is through the sharing of our creative efforts, we meet on the most common human ground.” Weber’s third book, “Perspectives, the Journey Within,” combines her stunning photos from global travels with philosophical quotations from sages like Einstein, Rumi, Emerson, as well as those from a very disparate population – inmates at California’s Valley State Prison for Women. Remarkably, the two groups share mutual beliefs and philosophies about living life fully and well.
