A Song In A Minor Key

Jeannette Houston's interpretation of Dorothy Parker

The Performer

Jeannette Houston has been practicing poetry along with theater since she was a young age. Nominated for the Poetry Out Loud school level last year, she is back for more and ready to share the work of Dorothy Parker with you.

The Poem

A Song in a Minor Key by Dorothy Parker tells the story of a woman waiting for her lover to return. In a beautiful place that is meaningful to them both, she waits with open arms for him to return. Little does she know the road looks dark, and there is not much hope in the bright future she has in mind.
