Questioned heaped into mighty pyres!
So many answers to digest. Perchance,
Is the composition some type of dance?
Shapley wrote:If my previous question an affirmative be,
Only then this question answer for me:
A shot in the dark, I draw arrow from quiver,
does the work concern a certain river?
Shapley wrote:Not a symphony, nor a dance,
I threw the die and took a chance,
Now it looks as though, to me,
A syphonic poem it can only be.
Which poem, now is the question I ask,
to solve the riddle, that is the task.
Which work, indeed, could it be?
Did it open the movie Space Oddessy?
Shapley wrote:I do not mean to quibble and quiver,
but question 15, the one about a river,
you did not happen to notice, I guess,
should only be answered if 14 was Yes.
Shapley wrote:So many tone poems, to settle the dust,
narrow the choices, clearly I must.
With questions to you I wish not to bore,
Was it composed 'ere the Spanish-American War?
Shapley wrote:Shakespeare, the bard, whose wit and fame,
put my humble poetry entirely to shame,
Wrote many great works, are the name
of one of his works and this one the same?
Shapley wrote:Nikolaus Lenau a poem once penned,
Of which Richard Strauss was impressed beyond end,
and inspired a work, which is very well known,
Could this work possibly be the same juan?

Unless Nav or someone wants a go at it!
