"Nocturnal Ensemble"

A Poem by L.C. Jarrette

"The Carnival of the Animals"







                                Neon tails





                                My Gemelina,      the Black foxes

                                roost                  singing sopranos

                                Giggling            Jiminy wonders

                                “Who”              acoustics in vibrato

                               Hear Tom          Cat’s melancholic song,

                               As the               bullfrogs play along       

                               Tiny swords       pierce my skin,       

                               Concertmaster  graces the stage again

                               Then cage owns core in my own Versailles

                               Savoring myriad notes while I lay rest

                                Illuminate the hall by the moonlit glee

                                 As the moon its maestro in honeyed

                                          Beethoven symphony

'Nocturnal Ensemble'
I found this ode to the concert of nature to be very lovely.
Many a time I have been smitten by it's beauty
as well. The format really gives it more vibrancy.
'Neon tails
The whole poem is just magical!

I love the structure of the poem makes it look like a piano which really brings out the meaning

WOW!!! Aesthetically pleasing, poetically pleasing, and a musicality that suits it well. Two notes:

1. "flutters" should be "flutter" since it's in reference to "lanterns" not "My Gemelina"

2. .......you begin in present, but you switch to past with the bullfrogs and then switch back to present again (why?).

Well done overall!
