horse-drawn Dixieland hearse
stained glass box in review
stylish musical throngs
come to bid me adieu
black parasols pumping
warm French Quarter air
marching afterbeat high-step
with side-to-side flair
joyful mourning jazz noise
swinging life from my death
play me home with my horn
still imbued with my breath
