I think this is an interesting perspective on a musician's perspective on fireworks. There is a catch, of course, about this musician. Do you know what it is?

These "works" ablaze you speak of,
I have never seen,
And in a life so long-lived,
I have been curious, but not plagued.
For I am not at a loss,
Nor am I between any rocks or hard places,
Nor do I feel like an outcast on any dog days in July.
My "fireworks" are not seen,
They would do me no good then,
So in this non-dilemma, I have found joy more.
In my harmonic gems, I have found purpose,
And with no end, cease, or anything else in sight,
And my tools, through these years of hardship remain,
I have an edge on your glorious, luminous show.
My fireworks will reach the heights of yours, and more, forever.
