a way to make it sing

born 1911 
prodigy by five 

1928 they met 
the inventor and the prodigy 

soon the greatest player 
of a magic box you do not touch 

1933 she wed 
a Broadway producer who stole her heart 

1998 she left 
as the theremin was coming back 

1998 she left 
us a way to make it sing 

With thanks, Happy Birthday Clara Rockmore!
