Divertimento: a light and entertaining composition,
typically one in the form of a suite for chamber orchestra.
The term is used particularly in the second half of the 18th century.
What goes from A to B
and itself never turns
but turns A into B
and back to A in turns?
What brings a divertimento back
as leaves turn to carpet
and trees start to ache
in rain turned grave-side sleet?
What drives us on to B
with our faces turned to A,
and why do divertimenti
only distract, and finally dismay?
