The Violin

She was a lonely violin, in a case all by herself, looking forward to the evenings, when he’d take her off the shelf- After reaching his destination, he would gently set her down, and ever oh so tenderly, remove her velvet gown- With chin held high, he’d hold her close, she made him feel so proud, and then a song she would sing , which always drew a crowd- Together they were magical, making music quite refined, he knew that she was special, of an extraordinary kind- Late one night the maestro sighed, a tear rolled down his eye, this cannot forever last, he said, for soon I’m going to die- The violin now knew, that soon would be their end, he had filled her life with loving care, and been so true a friend- Now on any given night, walking down this unpaved street , some hear a violin’s lonely cry, so sad , but yet so sweet-

No this is not me Lionel - just something for a contest on the All Poetry site. I noticed that you have not posted recently, so hope your are in good health. I did read your poem A Favorite Thing and thought it was a well written poem and enjoyed reading it. Mine are simple in nature or educational - guess I'm a poet by heart, but not really one of great words. I left this site before because it was not updated -old contests 5 years old/not judged yet still listed.Looks like it has improved.

Is this poem metaphoric? That violin wasn't you, was it?

Hi, Genevieve, your poem's outstanding. WOW, I can't believe all the new poem the New Poets are posting today. I'm not disappointed at all. Sometimes, when reading a new poet, it takes time to understand theirs style. I am loving the poem. I like the way you gave The Violin a lonely case to herself. xoxo..Linda

This is a 7 from me and an Instant Fave. The only thing that might improve is to remove the word "felt" from line one..then it would be absolutely perfect for me! ~Jan
