Poetry Corner

"I am from musical serenity,
from sharps and flats.
I am from the band hall
(Hot, crowded,
it smells like sweat)
I am from the winds
the B flat clarinet
whose notes I've been playing for years.

I'm from woodwinds and brass
from drum majors and band directors.
I'm from the pass offs
and the attempts,
from forte and piano.
I'm from rhythms and notes that
make such beautiful music
it makes some people cry.

I'm from contest and concert,
fast paced and beautifully slow.
From chipped reeds and stuck valves
I'm from cork grease and valve oil,
sticky and scentless.

I sit in the band hall playing
my music trying to take it all in,
so many different things
it's like a dream.
I am from all of these moments-
barely beginning with life-
this is my family, this is my home."
