Dancing of Sounds

There is a moonlight note
In the Moonlight Sonata;
There is a thunder note
In an angry sky.

Sound unbound by nature
Becomes bounded by art.
There is no competition of sounds
Between a nightingale and a violin.

Nature rewards and punishes
By offering unpredictable ways;
Art is apotheosis;
Often, the complaint of beauty.

Nature is an outcry,
Unpolished truth;
The art—a euphemism—
Tamed wilderness.

    I like the flow of your poem very much. A poem not just of sound, but the loveliness of each note found in nature... Truly it can be a symphony of tamed wilderness.... Very nicely put. (Report) Reply

    Art in general is apotheosis, elevated to a status of god and worshiped by many. Being an artist myself, i definitely thrive by the arts. And i also agree that art can be blunt and shocking but it's mostly enjoyable..........10 (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
