Solo

Location

The tightening of the bow

The pluck of the strings;

Let the tuning segment begin.

The audience anticipates its entertainment.

This is the main event

The eyes of all are watching.

This is what all of the preparation has gone into.

The stomach calms,

The bow is placed,

Fingers prepare for action.

Say a prayer, count it off.

Deep breath-

Let it go.

The melody soars,

The gliding bow,

The dancing strings.

Piano, Forte

Give a surprise.

Enjoy yourself.

The much awaited finale,

The last note rings out.

Silence-

Eruption.

Standing ovation.

Calm, peace

It is finished.
