Changing Score

Amplify the greening stillness
Clarify the setting day
Beautify the chirping boldness
Dignify a song to play

Classify the singing earthlings
Deify the animating word
Rectify the tearing heartstrings
Specify the crying heard

Vilify all biting virtue

Unify the hearts of stone

Fortify the flagging creature
Solidify the melting co...
