If you breathe in,

hold your breath

for five seconds …

and, slowly,

breathe out.

.

If you breathe in,

hold your breath

for ten seconds … …

and, slowly, very slowly,

breathe out.

.

If you breathe deeply in,

hold your breath

for as long as you can … … …

and, slowly, very slowly indeed,

breathe out.

.

If you breathe deeply in,

hold your breath,

as we have practiced,

and very, very slowly

(as a gentle breeze alighting upon a butterfly’s wing)

breathe out …

whilst breathing in …

(as we have honed to perfection)

and singing a delicate top A …

you can

(In all probability)

keep that note going for …

… ever.
