August 22: Acceptance

August 22: Acceptance

The wait between audition and result
Could drive less sanguine people to distraction,
For even if one does well, to exult
Is premature, since knowing just fraction

Of others seeking placement and their skill
Leaves many variables yet undefined.
Though premature analysis may thrill,
It’s won’t affect what parts will be assigned.

Acceptance, when it comes, is pure relief
And pleasure that your wish has been fulfilled,
That’s followed by dismay and disbelief
For those whose choral voices have been stilled.

The time for singing will come soon enough-
For now, I sympathize with the rebuffed.
