perfect time

the penny whistle blows
and the dog begins to howl
almost in time

it’s music in the morning
at our place

I can hear the tone improve
as practice pursues perfection
and the dog
can almost hold the tune

woo-oo-oo

woo-oo-oo

I’m not singing out loud
just breathing sounds
beneath my breath

inside my head

this is a kind of music
and I believe
I’m keeping perfect time
when I sing

woo-oo-oo woo-oo-oo

yes
it feels quite perfect

woo-oo
