Liverpool Philharmonic

They’re tuning up, I take my seat A crowded place it is Tuning up I scan the great Instruments we will meet The sway of the violins The boom of the trumpets The twinkle of the triangle The grace of the harp The bells sometimes sharp I’m but lost in the joy of it all Music gliding and rising My body so moved The wonderment so surprising The passion of the conductor Directing all the play I really am lost in awe Wonderful wonderstruck And enchanted I yearn for more and more

Did Milton persuade you to omit timpani? Enjoyed!

And a fine 'tune' they play too Angela. :) Two members used to come and play music and share their vast knowledge with patients at the hospital where I used to work in Liverpool. I can hear The Phil orchestra tuning up now as I read your poem. Nice one. :) Cheers - Gary

Ah that sounds great, the patients must have loved that, I just love going there, it really is quite magical, actually on their page now looking to see what I can buy for Christmas presents for family. Thanks for your message x
