The Symphony

The Symphony

A Poem by imagination101

A musical of different intruments.


The lights are dimmed to a soft glow.

Conductor takes the stage.

Audience takes their seats.

Noise fades into silence as the conductor

raises his baton.

The Symphony begins.


Keys from the piano play a melodious tones,

keeping in ryhthm with the other instruments.


The violinists clinch bow in hand as it

strums the four strings.

Music flows effortlessly.


Fingers gracefully pluck the harp.

 Harmony of music fills the coliseum.


The clarinet sounds beautiful and peaceful.

Affection for the music stirs audience to tears.


The trombone, trumpet and tuba take their turn

in the symphony.

Cries of an elephant can be heard as the

trumpet plays.


A flame from a lighter flickers in the dark

as it dances to the bounty of music.

The sound of the instruments soothe

the listeners to awe.

So simple that anyone could have constructed this. Yet, only you could manage to play the part so well with your conducted words.

dimmed, not dimed
Condcutor's "Stick" is actually called a baton
"Keys from the piano plays" should be play, it's referring to the keys
"the violinist clinch" clinches, or violinists -- the it at the end of this line is technically referring to the violinist
"A combination of harmony" harmonies should be pluralized, but really there should only be one harmony in a piece of music.

Don't let the corrections fool you, it's a well done piece. Very good imagery.

I do have one question about the last line. The flame from a lighter part. You don't normally see that at an orchestra, that's more of a rock concert thing.
