New Beginnings - A Shadorma

 A new play
It's opening night
Costumes on
Lines by heart
Audience is fidgeting 
The curtain rises,

The syllable count is correct; "it's" counts as one syllable.

Hi Paul: It is probably the syllable count in line 2. (Supposed to be 5) Kim must have counted it's - as - it is. I didn't check it in a syllable counter. What do you think?
