Hope no one minds if I join the group if it’s not an assignment for me. Well done to all the 6th graders writing those!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where Are You?

 

Months ago I saw people come and take my friends away, yet you never came.

 

I’m alone on my shelf, I think.

 

When will you draw the music from my strings?

 

When will I leave the case and make the beautiful sounds I used to make?

 

I remember on Thursdays after school I would listen to the happy music sounds coming from the ensemble room.

 

When not in use during school I would listen to the loud sounds in the hallway.

 

But I don’t hear those sounds anymore.

 

What happened?

 

Where are you?

 

What happened to you?

 

What happened to everyone?

 

I don’t hear music coming from the ensemble room.

 

I don’t hear loud sounds coming from the hallways.

 

I hear silence.

 

I hear loneliness. 

 

I hear quiet, and I don’t like it.

 

Where has everyone gone?

 

I miss the sounds.

 

Will they ever return?
