Apr 20, 2015 - Violin. She sleeps in her rose wood bed, under a blanket of velvet red; old and alone and forgotten, she dreams of the love she once had. Once again she recalls his caress on the curve of her hips and her breast as he moved his bow on the strings of her soul, playing her sound 'til his passion was spent.

Michael Jordan - 2008 - ‎Poetry

Elaine George wrote the most beautiful poem I have ever read. It's titled “Violin” and it is a true masterpiece. There are many others who have touched my heart to many to list them all individually and I apologize to them for that but on the poetry soup site just about any and all have held me in their prayers and hearts.

She sleeps in her rose wood bed, under a blanket of velvet red; old and alone and forgotten, she dreams of the love she once had. Once again she recalls his caress on the curve of her hips and her breast as he moved his bow on the strings of her soul, playing her sound 'til his passion was spent. ~~~ They traveled the whole world over, to every city and town; the maestro, his bow and violin, bringing each curtain down. ~~~ He died in a cry of sweet refrain, clutching her strings to his heart; as he fell to the floor in a final encore, tearing her world apart. ~~~ So she sleeps in her rose wood bed, under a blanket of velvet red; her strings still filled with the song of her soul, etched by the maestro that loved her so long ago! ~~~~~ Author: Elaine Cecelia George of Canada

Congrats on making the top 100! I remembered this poem as the first one in the anthology. I can see why it was. I love the personification of the violin. Anyone who is into music will love this.

A masterful write Elaine, I can't believe I've never seen this one before, I guess because I only joined in 2015 and this is from 2006, well I must say this write has held up quite well considering the years on it, much like the violin it lives on and on!

Thank you for your comments, Carol Yes! Personification(poems giving human characteristics to objects...eg. a violin) is one of my favorite genres of poetry. ~ Elaine

I suppose an instrument, really DOES have a relationship with the musician, as much as the musician does with the instrument. Some musicians I know, will not allow anyone else to handle their instrument. Surely, you were God's Instrument, when you wrote this. This is a masterpiece!
