April Snow

Rating: 5.0

It was early April, a few springs ago,
When in the UK, we had some late snow.
Up to London, I was making my way,
Praying that the snow wouldn't ruin my day.

The Olympic Torch Relay had come to town,
And we at Voicelab were to make a big sound
On the terrace outside the Festival Hall -
Singing our hearts out in the midst of it all.

During our rehearsal, we did not know
If the skies outside were still filled with snow.
The snow we hoped would soon be clearing,
As the time for our performance was ever nearing.

The clock crept round to half past one,
And a check on the weather was duly done;
The snow had stopped! We had the all-clear!
And all of us singers gave a loud cheer.

Into the open air, we all happily trooped,
And formed ourselves into an orderly group.
Crowds of people had gathered below,
To come and witness this special show.

Into loud song, we all joyfully burst,
Singing the songs which we had rehearsed.
The experience for us was simply glorious,
And our hearts and minds were filled with euphoria.

The performance for us went way too fast:
I think we all wished it would last
Just a little bit longer - we had such fun.
We all felt so proud when it was done.

I remember that day so very clearly,
As in my heart I hold it so dearly.
In my memory it will forever stay:
That very special and magical day.
