his nocturne

July 13, 2014 at 4:55 pm 5 comments


he is slouched in a chair,

all of his energy spent

mesmerized by a resplendent view ∼

he has captured the essence of the one he holds dear


their love

which will forever hold true


she has enraptured his soul

since the day they first met


inspired sweet music within…

her existence has touched each melody composed ∼

her beauty flowing through



each violin


she is the rhapsody

which fuels the beat of his heart


a most precious gift from above ∼

inspiring him to bring his music to life


her spirit


undying love



inspired by Alexander Borodin (1833-1887)

Quartet for Strings No. 2 – Third Movement – the Nocturne




{this piece was dedicated to his wife in remembrance of their courtship)

      Thanks. This piece is one of my favorite pieces of music. (I have a special love for the Russian composers – especially the Mighty Five and those they mentored). Some of this particular movement can be heard in the musical Kismet – the song Strangers in Paradise is in this show.

    So lovely, “she is the rhapsody” sigh!

      Thank you. This piece of music is so romantic and purely beautiful. When I found out he wrote it for his wife, it made so much more sense.
