It’s a mystery to me
How someone knows a note is ‘C’
Or stays in tune when they’re alone
Tell me – am I the only one
Who cannot tell when tone is true,
Whose times for singing were always few?
A Christmas Carol, a well-known hymn
That’s all I ever used to sing
But now I’ve joined a local group
With hubby, in the distant hope
That in a choir my voice will ring
And I’ll discover how to sing.
