Doe a deer, not ABC
More Maria Von Trappe than Mary Poppins
Sound rounding mountain and valley
Circle is music.
C jumps to G and G hops to D
Chords climb higher, snappier
‘Til they explode with seven sharps
Circle is play
D-flat drowns in cave darkness
A-flat flips on flashlight
E-flat, a forty-watt bulb illumines
Circle is light
A, undone and shrill, runs on adrenaline
B-flat offers succor in sorrow
C is both comfort and comfortable
Circle is life.
