Music is a language all understand ~Lily of Lough Neagh~


 An Interlude

 

Poised in deep calm silence

Gracefully holding its curvature

Amid the coolness of night air

As a single drop of water plops

Like a reverberating symbol chiming

Echoing, its circles span across the water

 

All is still

 

Breathless awaiting the next opus

The smoothest of movements

Horsehairs made with love

A symphony painting autumn’s colors

While caressing needy hearts

Poised  with intention

 

The first stroke

 

With precision of the surgeon

Tutting whispers of love in the air

Held much like her lover

Passion running deep

She caresses the awaiting strings

with the lightest of touch

a gentle singing forthwith to all

 

With songs of love

The audience swoons in knowing

How deeply she touches

With love her violin

With her gentle strokes

as the fingers that caress the soul

 

Her body swaying to the music

She puts forth to testify

Her deep love

Through her music

Melodies that tells her story

 

Carolee Dennis-Woosley

I have always loved music and singing and that is why I have enjoyed being a member of a local choir for several years. I lost my enjoyment of music and song about a year ago - a year of hell. Thank you for sharing this lovely offering, Carol. Love, peace, and best wishes to you,

A melody of gentle music in this interlude of the violin.
Beautiful love in gentle singing of the strings.

I like the delicate suspension in this poem. The way you used space around the stand-alone lines: Title "An Interlude" All is still" and "The first stroke" create the pauses that accompany your stanzas. My favorite line is: "a gentle singing forthwith to all." Very well composed, Lily! ~~ Diana

There's nothing quite as soothing as music, in my humble opinion. My niece plays the violin. I can't help but feel its touch inside my spirit. Beautiful in every way, Carolee.

We have an expression in our language that says "you know how to touch the sensitive strings" and that's exactly what you do.
You touch the strings of beauty and love with such a tenderness.
This is a beautiful hymn to a violinist and her music.

It does not only swoon the audiance, we all know how deeply you touch us with the gentle strokes of your pen

My father always wanted me to play the violin. I chose piano and oboe. I'm sorry today that I didn't learn the violin as well! This is such a beautiful piece of work!

Love ya!

I play no instrument but to me the sax is the most appealing tones I have heard. Music speaks to everyone differently but calmly. wonderful write.

Stay well and keep writing

strong combination of sensitivity and dramatic
tension, Lily; fine word choices and phrasing,
in particular use of 'Tutting' just right in its
context

it is you who are the meastro here Carol, you have penned us into the sensations of the violinists magic and as if we were dancing in the lyrical vibrations she stirs from her soul.

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton
You brought out the smoothness of the fingers as they touch and fondle and stroke the strings of the violin in such as way that makes me feel that I am sitting in the same room with her and listening to her magic. For magic is what musicians bring to the table as they perform for us. Great poetry, Carol. Great!
