A crescendo of tympanis.

The orchestra of the storm awaits the player.

Rain – are you ready with your bells?

The rain replies it is ready.

Wind – are you ready with your trumpets?

Yes, says the wind – I am ready.

The tympani awaits – the crescendos

of the Thunders of Zeus.

As the storm builds the player takes his seat –

tympanis shining with the lights up above.

He pulls out his Mallets – one positive, one negative.

And with every downstroke a bolt follows –

the Tympanis of the Thunders of Zeus radiate from the storm.

Play, Storm of Tympanis – echo your roars

echo on the praries, echo on the fields, echo, echo

echo away with crescendos and roars and tymphonic peals

Play, tympani of the storm.
