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.
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?
