Wrapped in Rhapsody

Twilight beckons, stage is set
Whispers of music, by night
Silence hushed, the perfect duet
With intro, my heart takes flight

Two in romantic, radiant rhythm
Ballad, most beautiful song
Played in double time, too numb
Blissful embrace, never too long

Hold fast till final Fermata
Last echo of piano’s key
Moonlight beams, of our private Sonata
Wrapped in tranquil rhapsody

Marina, this is beautiful. One of my favorite piano pieces is Moonlight Sonata. This reminded me of that!

Marina, my dear,
    This poem plays abeautiful tune inside my heart.

Hold fast till final Fermata
Last echo of piano’s key
Moonlight beams, of our private Sonata
Wrapped in tranquil rhapsody

     You really have a way with weaving a musical masterpiece out of your words!

Love Ya~

Marina,

Lovely blend of music, poetry, romance, kindled by a dance...

Loved this one...

Regards,

Denise, thanks I'm glad you liked it.Now I have probably put that tune in your head for days and come Monday you will be ready to kill me.

Sven, what would passion be without a little music and moonbeams.  Thank you


Jm, such a wonderful compliment from one who's pen has a flow of it's own. Thank you.

Jeffery, thank you, I very much appreciate your compliment and your encouragement of my work.  Of course I know you are only saying it because you want me to take you Honky Tonkin!

Terry, your post was lovely.  I glad you liked it, thank you.

Sudhir, thank you.  I guess I should have added candles to make it complete.

Sounds like a lovely evening...I also love Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata...especially the softness of Adagio sostenuto and the intensity of Presto agitato   James
