Nodame Cantabile And Rachmaninoff (Revised) - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

I’m watching Nodame Cantabile, the Animé series,
with my daughter. The Japanese intrigue is strange
but music heavenly – students at music academy –
once used to the weird diction of protagonists the
story unfolds in amazing music reels

The heroine is completely insane, Nodame never
plays piano as she should, improvising on Chopin,
Mozart, practicing Rachmaninoff without stopping
to eat or wash; the male student studying piano
but dreaming of becoming a conductor, charming

Everyone with magical recitals, playing Franz Liszt,
trying to get Nodame to focus on her music as she
plays by ear instead of studying notes. Its story drew
me in and off I went, waking as the music stopped –
the old experience of falling back from dreaming

Back into an enhanced reality as I shared music with
my daughter; knowing we share a bond of taste she
invited me into the private world on her computer
and a discovery that ability to be enchanted by
wonderment never ages...
