Orchestra, our favorite subject of the day.
We rush in the music room, eager to unpack
our instruments,
Grins creep across each musician’s face as we unpack
Our beloved stringed noisemakers.
We tune, we play, we make wonderful
Music, did I mention… it’s my favorite subject of the day!
  
The music brings joy to my ears as I listen to what could
be mistaken
For expert symphony players. The bows move up and down
In harmony on the strings. The melody moves gently
as the orchestra
Plays as one. Each and every player adds a unique addition
To the ensemble.
