As though a deaf musician, I am part
Of some great orchestra I cannot hear.
The only notes that fall upon my ear

    Lovely form
    Taps into that sparkling mystical realm in which Rumi whirled and whirled.
    Thank you for this beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    Not that great. The rhyme scheme is distracting and takes away from what the poem is supposed to be about....whatever that is...I couldnt quite grasp it myself. Its to formal, not enough emotion; lackadaisical and full of undeveloped whims. I did not enjoy it. (Report) Reply

    Indeed, this poem reminds me of one of the greatest musicians that ever lived: Ludwig van Beethoven.
    Heartfelt, descriptive, and beautiful; a poem that deserves a ten! . (Report) Reply

    Nice structure, and tone to describe the surroundings and sounds that are thought to be heard by the deaf narrator. (Report) Reply

    ...The only notes that fall upon my ear
    Are those which rise unbidden from the heart
    And offer teasing glimpses of the art
    Of harmony....

    Magnificent. No words more it need to intensify the thirst of beauty. Penetrative.............................Pranab k c 10 (Report) Reply

    Very pleasant to hear that, anyway Beethoven in his last life had hearing problem but still able to create a masterpiece work, if we know how our love on work is...a pure interest i mean we still capable to make it works well...just a true determination will determine the quality of our result_Soul (Report) Reply

    To quote Dr Johnson. 'You poem is both good and original. Unfortunately the parts that are good are not original and the parts that are original are not good. ' Did you think we wouldn't spot Wordsworth....; -) ? (Report) Reply

    Very beautiful sonnet. Shakespeare will be proud of this. The rhyme scheme is just perfect. The opening stanza draws you in and before long, you are tapping our feet to the rhythm. Well done (Report) Reply

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
