Write a triangle poem

~
Rhythm Band

the triangle just
kind of dangles from
a piece of string

most children do not choose
it from the box of
noise making instruments

it makes a tiny tingling sound
a merry jingling sound
a not too loud sound

it does not clang
like the cymbals or
rattle like maracas

it does not call
attention to itself
like the drums

but there is always one
the quiet one, the shy one
who loves the magic

of the triangle
