The Orchestra

Question

Posted · Report post

Symphony begins with the pounding of a drum

Cymbals collide, cellos hum

Piccolos fall silent as maracas play their score

And listeners with keenest ears applaud and say, "Encore!"

Hmm... not exactly something you'd applaud.

The steady beat of the drum is the second hand of the clock.

The cymbals are when the bell to end the class period sounds.

Cellos humming are seats scooting as kids are getting up to leave.

Piccolos are the pens and pencils stopping. Maracas are the footfalls of a herd of students.

And who can't wait for the next period to be over too?

Very close. It is thunder, lightning, something not yet guessed, and some other thing. You're on the right track.
