Soprano singing in St Nicholas’s Cathedral 1st June
An amber swathe glows across the grey stone
Fusing with the reflected hues of vivid violet
And vermilion seeping through the satin glass window
On this sultry June night ; as the boats are swaying
Gently by the harbor wall ; rested ; contented .
The soaring sweep of the voice is carried to the rafters on joyous
Swoops of splendour
As if a thousand swallows filled the cathedral air
And danced in rapture right up to the ancient rafters
And all along the lepers gallery ; up to the apse and
Dancing along the aisle and each transept
She draws the summer nectar from the air and
Bestows it to an audience on a glittering palette
Diamond encrusted of platinum and gold
Each note a jewel disguised momentarily as a petal
The orchestra await their signal on the conductors baton
Rapt ;in the urgency of the trilling moment ;
A touch of string and bow, a vibriato on a violin
A fluttering lilt on flute horn
And the rhapsody is consummated in the
Warm embrace of the harp strings ;
Rolling up and down the scales
