Free Concert



Sunday in the park

September – San Francisco

Band Shell orchestra

Beneath the last of warming suns

Conductor taps his wand

Preparing for the anthem

Some now stand

But others are too old, or tired.

A flock of pigeons flare above us

Startled by the sudden blare of brass and drums

Their loose formation makes a graceful, sweeping curve

With almost military grace

Above the scattered crowd

Eye glasses glitter

Watching as they wheel against a hard blue sky

Returning bravely to their nests when the triumphant noise has ended

They all know the score.
