~ 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.

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.

This piece creates the most alluringly romantic scene in my head, with your cryptic creations and magnificent descriptions that just lull the reader into the sensuous captivation of your words. I loved the classical take, the past has always felt so very alive with the flame of passion, which you recreated so well.

The only small niggle I had was when you referred to it being "like a never ending movie" - the piece is so beautifully classic, until that moment. To me, it was a little unsettled, and could be changed into something else, like simply a never ending dream or vision, which would enhance the dramatic atmosphere as maintained throughout the piece.

Apart from that, this piece was perfectly stunning.

Dear Elisa, what a beautiful and elegant piece of poetry you have created here. The imagery is so vibrant, and the music and photograph really reinforce its beauty. There has been so many times where I have woken up from my sleep and began to write, so I thought it was really funny that you mentioned that in your author's note. I love the stanza :

"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
Movie".

Great job--as always :))))

An almost modern fairytale-like imagery that pulls you into another world. I like the description of details in this one :-)
