~ 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.

I knew this would me a beautiful piece from its title,'She and The Harpist of Rome', and it certainly did not disappoint. The elegant writing made me travel to Rome and behold this elegant scene.
''She heard his light strings,
Whirl along the quay,''
I just love how even at the first words it is able to captivate. Wonderful.

Thank you so much emrick for your time and that you give me a read :)
You brought me an image of the sounds and aromas within the Eternal City . There must be quite a large number of romantic troubadours in Rome these days playing harps as well as other enchanting medieval instruments.

"It brought the rhythm of the day,

Movie."~ There is no beauty that compares to the vision in the eye of the beholder... what he sees
is a masterpiece, infused with a timeless love for her.

This is unequivocally the most enchanting piece I've read from you... yet...

Superb work of art!~xoxo~:)

I wish I could wake up with such beautiful words such as these dancing in my thoughts. All I think of is COFFEE!!!!! Eli I am thoroughly impressed with each piece you craft, as you continuously pen piece after piece of beautiful poetry. The imagery throughout is portrayed in such a way it paints a lovely picture, taking me on a journey into your mind. A place I love to visit :)

"Together with the ambience to
Fulfill and embrace"

For me this personally was the heart of the poem. "The ambience"

Well done, my friend. Another fav added to my library.

You too dearest, enjoy every moment... Tonight I'm back for more reviews, much love to you too x
The melodious strains of a harp and the joyous wonder of nature make for a classic poem of romance here, Elisa. I enjoyed the rhyme scattered throughout the poem. A wonderful presentation too! Lydi**
