ANGELA & BRIAN

MOONLIGHT IN THE WOODS ๐Ÿงก ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿ’™ A FLOW POEM



 

BEETHOVEN ~ YOU ask me where I get my ideas for My Music from ?

I cannot tell you with certainty ~ BUT they come unsummoned directly

and indirectly ~ Out of the Woods on a Moonlit Night ~ Or in the

Morning ~ incited by My Moods and translated into HARMONY !  Such

experiences would be translated by a POET into words ~ POETRY !

 

WE are often asked on MPS ~ What generates POEMS ?

POEMS ~ according to BEETHOVEN ~ comparing MUSIC to POETRY

POETRY is a versification of IDEAS .................

IDEAS gleaned from ones own  EXPERIENCES !

EXPERIENCES ~  Like walking @ Midnight ~ through WOODS !

WOODS @ MIDNIGHT ?  To me that has more than a hint of DANGER !

DANGER for a Lady all alone ?  Id be safe with MY BIG BEAR ~ BRIAN !

BRIAN ~ Is a Night Owl ~ Hed BOLDLY GO ~ into the Woods @ NIGHTS !

 

NIGHTS are Spooky !  You see and hear THINGS

THINGS that are not really THERE !

THERE must be an explanation ~ Is it all really in the MIND ?

MIND that translates MOON SHADOWS into an actual MOONSTERS !

MOONSTERS ready to leap out ~ and swallow YOU !

YOU grip Brians hand tighter ! Safe & Happy together are WE ! 

 

Thanks for reading ~ comments please ~ Love A & B ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

 

This POEM is presented as an  8 6  free verse FLOW SONNET.

In a FLOW POEM ~ each succeeding line ~ BEGINS with the

same WORD that terminates the preceding line. I have printed

these key WORDS in CAPITALS to EMPHASISE the structure of

the POEM ! you might like to try one for yourself ! Love A & B !

 

BEETHOVENS MOONLIGHT SONATA is one of the most POPULAR 

Classical Pieces on BBC Classic FM !  In the First Movement the notes

for the left hand are a series of CHORDS (see video) and it is very simple !

It was the first CLASSICAL PIECE I (ANGELA) ever learned when I was

about SEVEN !  It has been my Party Piece ever since ! It is so so

melancholy & soporific !  BRIAN loves it too because he used to lie in bed

listening to his DAD playing it in the Music Room below !  If CLASSICAL

MUSIC ~ be the Food of Love ~ then PLEASE PLAY ON & ON & ON !

      Hi Angela and Brian,

      A good write.

      I wish I was musical.
      Sadly I am not.

      Have you ever thought of writing a song?

      A lot of your good poems could be the lyrics to a song.

      Keep writing FineB

        SORRY FB ! Weve sent our reply as a comment ~ please check on the POEM ~ OK ~ Thanks A & B !

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        THANKS for your encouragement FB ! Yes I play Guitar and Angela Piano and we are both in CHOIRS. We are both CLASSICAL POETS so most of our ditties tend to both RHYME & SCAN and are very singable ! We are performance Poets and tend to sing our ditties to well known tunes instead of composing new tunes ! BUT we will give it some thought. We tend to sing in FOLK or COUNTRY style so there are plenty known tunes available ! Watch this space ! Pleased you enjoyed the presentation !

        Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOURS

          Both the Sonata and your intriguing poem bring the moonlight into its own - an enchanting experience are woods lit by the moon and thank you for sharing your exciting walks with us.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          ANGELA HERE - Thanks FAY ! When we read the quote by BEETHOVEN we could not believe the analogy He was drawing between his Divine Music and the efforts of humble poets like You & I. We love the idea that the same Moon that inspired the Haunting Moonlight Sonata could inspire our many poems about the Celestial ORB - but it does - AMEN. Pleased you enjoyed it and found it intriguing !

          Blessings & Peace & Joy
          Love Angela & Brian
