The only notes that fall upon my ear

    Indeed, this poem reminds me of one of the greatest musicians that ever lived: Ludwig van Beethoven.
    Heartfelt, descriptive, and beautiful; a poem that deserves a ten! .

    Nice structure, and tone to describe the surroundings and sounds that are thought to be heard by the deaf narrator.

    ...The only notes that fall upon my ear
    Are those which rise unbidden from the heart
    And offer teasing glimpses of the art
    Of harmony....

    Magnificent. No words more it need to intensify the thirst of beauty. Penetrative.............................Pranab k c 10

    Very pleasant to hear that, anyway Beethoven in his last life had hearing problem but still able to create a masterpiece work, if we know how our love on work is...a pure interest i mean we still capable to make it works well...just a true determination will determine the quality of our result_Soul

    To quote Dr Johnson. 'You poem is both good and original. Unfortunately the parts that are good are not original and the parts that are original are not good. ' Did you think we wouldn't spot Wordsworth....; -) ?
