Telling Tales

 Long Division

While at a choral concert
A men’s acapella chorus
Singing complex songs
Based upon the poetry
The prose of Shakespeare
I forgot the world’s woe
All of my own problems

Ranged voices in ensemble
Deep bass to counter-tenor
Telling all our own stories
Simply, completely, clearly
So we all might understand
How we shared the ecstasy
Joyfully joining, indivisible

Forgetting all the problems
Together, all homogenous
Touching forgotten roots
Digging in common earth
Seeking truth, beauty, life
Spirit in music planting
Creativity, storytelling all
