Harmony Day

Harmony Day Celebrated with Eggs

Various sized, colour and sized eggs

A solo voice was singing
quite a pretty little song
Another voice who knew the tune
joined in and sang along
The duet sang in unison
their voices side by side
One bass voice one soprano
on the same melodic ride

Another singer joined them
Counter pointed to their sound
As this voice descended theirs would climb
and the other way around
The tune got woven, twisted, plaited
in a tapestry to hear
Building to a pretty picture
that grabbed people by the ear

Now each singer had to listen
to the other singers' part
to stay in time and stay in tune
With all fellow singers' hearts
They had to work with common purpose
If they all would get along
and welcome other different voices
to build the richest fullest song.

All the voices joined together
had the audience entranced
Folk were swaying to the rhythm
while some other people danced
And they sang about community
but with a common ground
where each one had a part to play
so that harmony was found.

(Harmony, by Paul Walker.)
