We are instruments in the grand symphony of life. That’s why I enjoy watching and listening to orchestras play. I am usually singing or tapping my hands or feet along or swinging my arms to the rhythm of the music. My favorite is the playing of classical music, of course, and sung by well known tenor, Andrea Bochelli is a delight to hear.
To give you a little bit of background, take a look here about instrumentation in orchestras:

They each have a part or piece to play in the grand scheme of things. Just like you and me.

Thanks for the good poetry Glenys.
With our company always on call
we were rostered on different shifts
though some did only night shifts.
Some of us died young,
under retiring age.
All those who died within
my ten years there had
only worked night shifts
for at least several years.
Doris had a brain tumour
Enid had stomach cancer
May had lung cancer
Alf had a massive heart attack.
Young Jack was medicated
for seizures. He went to
sleep one night for ever.
Relief workers came in
each time staff attended
yet another funeral.
We all knew those who passed away
had spent so long on night shifts
yet no one questioned it.
I do wonder
are our bodies
chewed up turning
day into night
night into day ?
For some do not survive night shift.
