Barcarolle No. 3, Ned Rorem

I almost forgot the feeling

of flowing

rhythm unstoppable

a river, a pendulum

steady, steady, regular, regulated

a flow of inflections, emotions

and yet nuanced

and yet exuberant

belting, whispering, voice cracking

trumpet fracking

string

ringing

flinging

arms out

sticks the landing

hands up, out

of the flow
