I've just about worn out the CD and DVD I mentioned in my last blog. I've played the Youtube video an embarrassing number of times. But just to prove I'm not wasting my time, I thought I'd post the poem I've written, inspired by Rieu's 'I love you'.
The melody eludes me,
dancing on the edges of my memory,
skipping out of reach of outstretched thoughts
as I try to remember.
Yet the joy of it goes on;
the rising of my heart,
the melding of my soul with violin,
I feel it still.
Wishing star in twilight sky,
violets in dappled shade,
the blue-grey eyes of the one I love;
Images drawn in exquisite sound,
like silken threads into my mind.
They will endure
long after the magician’s fingers
cease to caress the strings,
and his bow lies
For his spells linger
beyond the moment of creation,
his smiling notes float on into the future,
I'll probably work on it some more before I consider it 'finished'. Any suggestions for improvement will be gratefully received.
