Soprano Sforzando

Last night the soprano numbers were low.
We did not have the comfort of numbers.
If I did not sing well Jonathon would
know who it was.
I tried to sing quietly and
keep my mouth small.
We sang The Water is wide.
I hope I sang it well.
The soprano in front of me
covered her ear.
I need to sit in the back row
so everybody can hear.
Margaret and Rita and Betty
come back. I need you.
Pianissimo becomes my fortissimo
no matter what I do.
