Summer Serenade

15 Jun

Summer’s orchestra plays
woodwind overture
of a bird-filled morning.

Viola hum of bees
quark of oboe ducks
blend with bowing violins
of an insect-busy refrain

Trombone slide convertibles
show off the flashy third movement.

Clink of cutlery and crystal
are percussion

tremolo laughter
the piccolo trills
of a pitch-perfect finale.

Encore!
