Love is not a feeling; it is a gift, an act, an ultimate sacrifice. -Me (Em)

What awesome prose, what poetry
Lies lettered in your conductor's face
That can make you sing so?

What gentle power of your bow
Turns me to silent, watching stone
While your hands still move so?

I listen to you and my rushing pulse
Speaking rhythmic chords into my ears
Bringing such deeply mov'd tears.

The heav'nly wood you palm is my heart.
The strings you are stirring form my soul.
The sweet applause you're hearing is my voice.
My ardor's curling, joyous, like your scroll.

I want to present you
With a thousand standing ovations.
This is my devotion.

So forever now and forever do,
Hear me too: I love you.

I liked this poem, it was unique in an odd way, if that makes sense??

The first thing that came to mind when I read the first line was "The Tyger" by William Blake.  I don't know why, haha

Unfortunately for me I can't really relate cause I'm musically challenged. But the flow of the poem has a harmony too it. Almost like an ode to the violin.

Live Life Like A Party That Never Ends

This is very well written! Towards the end, you broke the flow you had established of 3 lines per stanza, and it would have been nice if you stuck to that, but oh well. This is really good, and I can definitely see why it was picked to be in the magazine. Congratulations :)

pretty good.  I am an avid pianist and love listening to just about everything.  If you could look at 'Fridays', it's on the first page of the forum and i haven't yet decided whether or not to submit because it seems really dark.
