“Rest in Pieces” by Elijah Tan Hao Jie

Description: The Rest notation in musical pieces tells us that amidst all the work that we have, we need some fun and take some breaks. The poem is written with all lines being 9 syllables with the last line of each stanza pointing to the vicissitudes of life of the famous musician Beethoven. The poem also depicts the moonlight sonata movements where he gets increasingly angry towards the end, at the third movement.
