Symphony

EER_0406

The Woodland Symphony

Music pours out from shadow and tree

Calling us all to enjoy a reprieve

EER_0198

A melodious symphony straight from the heart

Each tiny instrument playing its part

Miniature voices in perfect pitch

Unwritten scores of notes that are rich

Filled with a beauty beyond man or pen

A symphony of music that will never end

EER_0015

Mocking birds solo sopranos and basses

Finding their notes in so many spaces

Piccolo warblers and wren solos start

Antiphonal melodies straight from the heart

EER_0318

The bassoon bull frog comes in now and then

Cicadas’ strings play background blends

Crickets and blue jays fill the air

The snare of the trees adds depth to the pair

Woodpeckers drumming on old hollow trees

A staccato rhythm that floats on the breeze

EER_0341

Suddenly right out of the blue

The feline conductor brings all in on cue

EER_0024

With a growing crescendo from blue jay and friends

Celloed instruments calling, “This is the end!”

EER_0030

The squirrel plays percussion with his raspy scolding

As the woods fills with music the finale’s unfolding

EER_0018

A thunderous applause from the balcony on high

Brings all to their feet flashes crossing the sky

The concert is over the conductor’s gone home

Performers take bows the music is gone
