Resonating beneath the bow

The violin sings soft and low

Romantic airs for lovers true

Solemn dirges for mourners who

Walk heads bowed in abject grief

To the sounds of an adagio

Wiping tears to say cheerio.


The lovers listen to their air

They have no mournful, solemn care

The notes the violin plays for them

Transports them to a grassy glen

Where fairies sing and dance with joy

For the love between this girl and boy.

I wonder what type of music your poem speaks of...
Perhaps I hear folk songs?
Or maybe classical...

beautiful soothing cadence in your poem...
I especially like the first stanza.

I love your poem, especially the first two lines:
"Resonating beneath the bow...The violin sings soft and low...
For anyone fortunate enough to have drawn a bow over the strings of a violin at one time or another, it brings back the lovely vibrations felt and the emotions its sound can bring forth, in grief or joy. Such a versatile instrument, and a lovely write. Thank you for sharing this.
