I watched her walk across the stage

Power in her step

She sat down and began to play

A soft melody echoed through the room


The music filled my mind

Bright blue and bright green filled my head

It pranced around the room

Showing everyone what it could do


The melody slowed, and then it stopped

The audience roared in approval

She stood up, bowed, and then retreated off stage

Soon it will begin


It is now time

Contestants float off and away

One by one 

Until there are only two


The queens have now been crowned 

Time for a bright beginning
