Crescendo

Music

Crescendo

The noise began softly enough

as the orchestra’s strings began to play

the flutes and the piccalos joined in with the tune

led by an oboe and a bassoon

to the listenener the music was perfectly poised

as those there playing were joined by a bang

and held in the air – silence it hang

it sounded like thunder – there was an almighty crash

as percussion joined in and kettledrums were bashed

and cymbals and gongs were clattered and crashed

the rest played along to the percussionists peak

till the noise of their thunder died down and became meek

whilst the only noise in the room that was sharp

was the solo effort of a lass on the harp.

Brassy

Bronze it may not be, but it can bang out a tune

Resonating a sound that travels up and down the land

As great winds travel through moulded instruments

Some would call it a bit of a live wire with its sound, but

Spark like some other metals ? its remote.

You’ll see its yellow tones on railways and industrial sites for that very reason

Antique brass

At times you could mistake it for gold

with it’s off yellow patina

Decorating houses 🏡 with things from time gone by

But it’s much more valuable than that

To each wooden door 🚪 its castings and shapes

Bring a smile to those who are greeted by it

As younger successors buckle bridles and shoes

And animals awake their owners

As they knock on front doors around the land
