~ She and The Harpist of Rome


 

 

She heard his light strings,

Whirl along the quay,

They sung, they touched her

Heart, through fine senses,

Among the green gardens

Of Rome, that day --

 

The sunshine, shone,

Rosy on her cheeks;

The smell of fresh jasmine,

And newly fallen rain,

Gave a combination,

Of gossamer odors, and to fain;

 

He did imagined her in as 

The pure perfume of Rome, 

And with the distant

Sound of horseshoes;

Tapping on the cobblestones,

To make his musical notes complete

 

It brought the rhythm of the day,

In a floral silk oasis -- touched,

With the essence of her being

And by his sublime creativity felt

In his head, like a never ending

Dream...

 

The mix of these fresh colors

That a mind can perceive, in the purest

Coherence, filled with ozone,

And the sun... she so close...

 

The elegance and music, made her

Together with the ambience to

Fulfill and embrace

And a heart to be full of love -

To be finally home.

 

 

~ Elisa Laura

My GOoDness Elisa...
where do I start...How about, I absolutely loved everything about this write...everything
I'm not usually a big fan of accompanying music, but in this case it worked purr....fectly...then the picture of Giuliano...and away we go....
But the write...sublime in every way, shape and form...beautiful, thoughtful, classical imagery brought this dream to life. The spontaneous and unforced change in style, erratic but purposeful rhyming (especially the near rhymes), and your grasp and usage of archaic words (fain, quay),
a touch of metaphorical brilliance and voila...a masterpiece. This is as close as you get.
Awesome write Elisa...Great poem...wonderful message of love.
BTW...I always sleep with a pencil and pad and tape recorder near my bed for just those situations...
Ain't no way I'd remember diddly the next morning..or even 30 seconds after awakening..... some of our best visions are just before dawn.

Awe thank you Raymond... I appreciate it... very much friend.
Wow, GOD, let me just say before I really review your poem, what a great photo!!

This is such a terrific and classically inspired poem. It is stately in its discourse. It is hard for me to put to words what you have done here because I frequently fail at it myself. You have very effectively focused on these little invisible moments in-between the "facts" that most stories tell. It is brilliant and very much what I find good poems do, that I rarely can. I look at a scene and I pick out the details that one might write into an essay or something scholastic. This is a scene in which you have plucked out the atmosphere and given it to us whole and complete, without bothering to focus on the factual garbage like "he went here and did this." It is always hard for me to not do that. You seem to understand that here intrinsically and I wish you could teach it to me!

;) Thanks! I am definitely better at song writing.
Hi, I'm back...did you miss me? Where have I been you ask? I have been on a marvelous journey to a land filled with wondrous beauty and hypnotic music. I have have walked through delicious gardens and sweet fragrances, wandering through a maze of stardust dreams and old world feathers touching my skin. I have visited love, in its purest form and smiled at its offerings. Elisa, I have been lost in your poem and what an exquisite lost it was...and I never left my chair. Stunning my friend.

I swear if I could pick a poem to live in..this would probably be it. Maybe I have Italian roots or lived this dream in a past life or somwthing because this touches me so. The imagery. The romance. Rome. The music. The Colors. PERFETTO!!
