From todays prompt:
Gingerly accepting the score in both hands
and taking my place at a spare music stand,
I shelter my ignorance beneath confident air –
take a deep breath, like a yawn, I prepare
to give my best shot, at least not the lead –
another deep voice was declared as in need
and I won’t feature much while stood here at the back
– the tune’s not that tricky, my voice fills the gap.
I sing for my supper and sing from my heart
and find that I quite enjoyed singing that part.
