Overture

The overture
Of us
It was
A crescendo
Like no
Other

Libretto
Off the page
The instruments
Transformed
Altogether

It lasted
No more
Than
A few
Lilting
Minutes
Rests & all

The bass 
& the
Treble
Fading to
A lull

Upon the return
To chorus
A method of onus
The overture
Returns
Reminding us
Of endings
