Norman – a poem and portrait

Five CinquainesJoanNorman3  by Linda Andersonne Cowan


Norman

Never late

Exquisite beat patterns

Musical taste shared with us all

Conducts

Leader

Welcoming smile

Juicy information

Clarity and efficiency

Rehearse

Player

Practice smart

Select hard passages

Black notes tease my eyes and fingers

Prepare.

Sooke Phil

Peak this night

We grow and rise as one

Unite harmonize and vibrate

Perform

People

Sound the drum

They come to hear us play

Watch listen breath enjoy – and say

They pay!
