his nocturne

ξ

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

and

their love

which will forever hold true

ξ

she has enraptured his soul

since the day they first met

and

inspired sweet music within…

her existence has touched each melody composed ∼

her beauty flowing through

strings

of

each violin

ξ

she is the rhapsody

which fuels the beat of his heart

and

a most precious gift from above ∼

inspiring him to bring his music to life

with

her spirit

and

undying love

ξ

inspired by Alexander Borodin (1833-1887)

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

      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.

      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.
