"Carpe Diem"
"O' Captain, My Captain"
"No one has ever made himself great by showing how small someone else is."

The magnificent sound of the flute,
Flowing through the air;
Never to go mute.

From the highest of pitch,
To the lowest of blare.
The magnificent sound of the flute.

Fingers moving rapidly,
With precision and care;
Never to go mute.

Listen with your heart,
Listen then declare,
The magnificent sound of the flute.

Silver shining over the keys,
Leaves people with a stare.
Never to go mute.

The song is almost over,
But still lingers in the air.
The magnificent sound of the flute,
Never to go mute.

The author's comments:
I wrote this Villanelle poem about the flute and its amazing sound. It can sound fun, haunting, mean, and beautiful and it gave me the inspiration for this. I have been playing flute for 6 years now and I enjoy it very much!
