The steadfast

Beating of a drum

That drives the

Tempo on and on

The horns that

Trill across the top

And cause a heart

To lift and drop

The woodwinds that

Don't skip a beat

And rush along

In mindless feats

That simple rhythm

The quiet song

That drives the

Seeker on and on

To find the end

And solve the case

And then to weep for

Silence reigns
