Ode to a May Evening

People gathering on the Square;
the KSO is playing there!
Something’s cookin’ good, let’s eat!
Friends are here, meet and greet!

Live music to complete your day,
bring a lawn chair, that’s ok.
No, it’s not Sundown in the City,
ours is a more symphonious ditty.

Patriotic, operatic,
your pleasure will be automatic.
William Grant Still’s Can’t You Line ‘Em;
the concert goes on rain or shine-em.

Baritone sings “Figaro!”
outdoors with the KSO.
Stephen Foster, John Philip Sousa,
and something for your dancing shoes-a.

From Les Mis and Titanic,
old favorites played, don’t panic!
A Knoxville anthem (initials R. T.),
and don’t forget, admission’s free!

(I know, odes are probably way longer than this, but ode is such a cool word).
(7:30 TONIGHT, Market Square)
