Maybe this was her Olympic chance.
Everything hung into balance.
Did she have what it would take?
As she leaned in for a kiss she had the answer
Looking for the gold, she was settling for the bronze.
Bronze flashing, ringing, singing
Enveloping the spirits of those around
Loud bashing to soft banter
Layering music, hope, and joy
Shattering the silence
Bronze polished to a mirror finish
Elevated, ready to begin
Letting loose a pure tone
Lofting music to the heavens
Seeking musical peace
