Miniature woodwinds whistle underwater
While electric eels make the ocean warm in summer
Olives that were left on the sand become bathing beach bunnies
Being wooed by seashells singing elegant choruses

Little viola hidden in the orchestra,
How I love to pretend the sounds you make are flowers that slowly encircle the band.
That curl around each note that's played.
The audience charmed by the floating garden of music giddily pick musical floral bouquets.

And now its time for the play...

The actor in the center of the stage looks sadly at a teacup,
Reads a poem off the teacup and covers his face with a page of a poem on the teacup and sings,
"What a terrible lie you told me. That you're heart was mine to buy.
