Curious Verse

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.
