Reads and Mixtures
I go from page to page and book to book,
Sometimes, it's for days that I look.
All that time is well spent in the search,
It's for God's service in my church.
I practice every note 'till I get it right,
Sometimes I work until late at night.
After the Benediction the sounds pour forth,
I'm now playing for all I'm worth.
Then my eyes glance away from the score,
I'm amazed at what I see on the floor.
While I was playing and being quite deft,
All the people got up and left!
