Poem of the Week-Master Class

Master Class drama

Opera students bellowing out arias

Diverse apprentices sweep by

Chicano bass or tenor sings impeccable Italian

Mexico University to 45 Italian days

Asian, Latino and White pupils fill the spectrum

Mozart, Puccini, Cilea and Rossini

Perfect intonation and phrasing

Site reading pianist keeping up

Professor stopping to free up fears

Correcting an emotional burp

Strutting the stage

Pulling me out of afternoon slumber

Eyes peering at me

Taking my soul to heavenly notes

Each movement lifts a passion

Historical music brought to my present

A dessert for me to languish.
