George Bowman the Musician

He greets people

Who travel to work

Or return home

From all day work

With his trumpet

He voices out a melody

 

How are you today?

Let me serenade you

From a hard day’s work

Or travel from here to there

Have a pleasant day everyone!!!

 

With his horn of melody

Soothing the ears of those

Who pass by

 

Good morning!!!

Good afternoon!!!

Or good night!!!

His trumpet sounds

Connecting to human souls

 

George Bowman the Musician

Happy to serenade

The travelers who pass by

His life is fulfilled

With happiness and peace

It is a life well lived

George Bowman the Musician

On Thursday, February 18, 2016 about 1:30 P.M., I traveled on the E-train, subway in New York City.  I got out at Chambers Street and walked along the tunnel, underground to the World Trade Center to get the Path train heading home to Newark, New Jersey.  I saw a man standing near the wall with his trumpet in his hands.  I always want to have a conversation with the musicians who perform in the subway or out on the streets but I never have a chance.  Listening to his music, I decided to approach him; luckily there was no one there at that moment so I began asking him some questions.  We had a nice short conversation.  Then I asked if he would play one more tune or a song for me to record and told him that I would like to use the material to post on my website and Google +, post a video on YouTube.  He wrote his name and information for me before he serenaded me with his interpretation of, Somewhere Over the Rainbow tune.  I was very happy and felt privileged to know him.  I showed the video to my husband, John Watts.  He likes the music and my conversation with Mr. George Bowman.
