Playing Flute Is Hard

She struggled with notes
Trying to play fast
Fingers moved stiffly
Music notes runs up and down
Slur groupings one after another
Falter as air deflates out.

Her cheeks red flush
She takes quick breath
Trying to catch up
A measure behind fellow flutists.

Music seems there is no rest
Her fingers falter
Slip between the keys of the flute
She looks exhausted; crestfallen.

Perhaps different instrument
Is what she needs
To continue enjoy being in the band.
