The Infinite Symphony

Location

We watch her

She watches us

Her hands are up

One breath together and we go

Our bows slide

Whispering

Fingers grace the board

Gliding daintily

We then see the light we've waited for

Crescendo

Foreshadowing the magic to come

We grow as one

Slurring across the lines

Ebony and ivory in beautiful harmony

We feel it before we see it

Accelerando

Despite our difference in altitude

We all file up the staff

Higher and higher we climb

Glissando

Once, twice, thrice

Together we soar

Every note is hooking, slurring, trembling

Vibrato intensifying them all

The eye stares at us

Remindng us who is in control

She cuts us off

Con Moto

Soprano and alto

A match made in heaven

Dancing like the piece belonged to them

They all too soon break apart

We feel the growing anticipation

And we know they feel it too

It's in the air around us

The finale

Con Fuoco

Erupting like God's given right

We are one and we must project

Our souls were filling the room

Fortissimo

Everything we have and everything we are

Is to be laid here and now

Each note wears its own crown

We give them their glory

Rallentando

Beginning our fall

It is not sad

But gracious

For when we are done

Our sound is still there

And forever will it be
