The cello sings low

When brushed by bow

Then oboe chimes in

With other woodwinds

A murmured start

To musical art


The music bleeds

From wetted reeds

As the brass horns

Round out the form

A harmony struck

As each note plucked


Percussion beats loud

Feet tap in the crowd

And Marimba plays

With mallets ablaze

Baton and tuxedo

Driven allegro


Cymbals loud crash

Piano taken to task

Timpani moan deep

As clarinets weep

The rising sound

A symphony found
