La Primavera

October 6, 2012 at 5:37 PM

Jingle bells and snow combine
As snowballing hymns are heard
Linus plays Beethoven sonatas
And the timpani crackles softly.

That lovely string quartet
Playing Vivaldi’s Spring
At the crack of dawn with the rising sun
With violin birds twittering.

When orchestras show films
At the ocean waves of the conductor
Blue flutes clash black tombones
As Frodo’s epic journey is heard.

Notes next fall from the sky
Splashed on the skeletal page
Screaming strings and pounding pianos
All on Halloween night.

It’s a symphony that’s all around us
Morning, noon, or night
Whether in movies or in concert halls
It binds us all together in extraordinary delight!
