IV.26  The Thespian
What a commanding presence
Holding an audience spellbound
(An audience spilling-over into the aisles and steps, spellbound)
With a flick of his wrist, a look
A perfectly delivered line
What a voice
Gravelly-dulcet
What energy, flexible as an acrobat
Solid story, perchance
 even a reading of the Telephone Directory

Would be as impressive in that voice.

"Gravelly-dulcet." I've heard a few voices like that and you're so right: even a reading of the phone directory or the back of a cereal box would entrance me.
