The Young Warblers


We woke up to cloudy skies
the conductor and I
I peeked through the blinds and spied
a mist in our midst, as I applied lipstick

Thunder rumbled and shook the shutters
Another rainy day at the amusement park
On with the show, to the Tivoli we must go
to sing, and me on the keys

We do it for the children
A quiet morning of numbering measures
while listening to records and sipping coffee
It’s going to be pouring, but here I am with my high heels anyway
