'Children's Chorus'

A prompt from We Write Poems: Congregate.

‘Children’s Chorus’

They are a part of something really grand -
They know this much as they fill up the stage,
The little ones are just six years of age,
It might be hard for them to understand,

Or maybe not.  In simple black and white
They stand like one.  Aware of their cause,
They hold their breath, before takeoff they pause,
All eyes on her… And then her hands take flight -

And music starts.

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur


  1. I understand that feeling very well. Choirs are great for togetherness.

  2. My daughter joined a choir not long ago, and it's been a wonderful experience. I'm so happy for her. Thank you for the comment, Viv.

  3. Singing in a choir is a special feeling, and you have described it well, Happy.


  4. Thank you, Pamela, I haven't sung in a choir :-( but my daughter, a chorister, approved of my poem :-)

  5. Choirs are very nurturing experiences for kids usually and you've captured that with your poem ... nicely done
