This poem is about the emotional power of a single opening chord in a piece of music. If you are a classical music aficionado, think of the openings to Prokofiev's 'Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 2 (VII)', Strauss's 'Blue Danube', Elgar's 'cello concerto, the second movement of Beethoven's 7th symphony or the opening of Brahms's 1st symphony. And if you don't know any of these pieces, visit YouTube and listen, even if it's only for the first few seconds. Then read the poem.
