(Regarding Frederic Chopin)

nights nestled in sounds

a soft-handed series

each piece

parvum opus

a romance of whispers

warm melodies

welcome of

melancholy moons

broken chords convey

tensions of counterpoint

offset by delicate

tender arpeggios

rich petite dramas

who linger

the ear

has remarkable memory

keeping forever

these lush unsung arias

notes set to signature

penned by

the mindstrokes

of prodigy

audible genius

a keyboard of gifts

from a frail

polonaise virtuoso
