The Charmer - Poem by Paige Scott

Softly the rhythm beats, pulses and beats;
Quietly the music notes fly.
Like a charmer it’s magical melodies
Mesmerize— enchant—lead away.
Softly…. quietly…. peacefully….dream—
Quietly the music notes fly.

    Thus is a little gem. It is a gift not given to all writers, to know when enough is enough, and this is just right. (Report)Reply

    The order in which you use your words works so well. It let me through the different phases of music and I can see how the music is charmed. Beautiful writing. 10 Karin Anderson (Report)Reply

    The repetition really puts this piece together, emphasizing the charm and melodious trance that music can put people into. I love music, and therefore this poem. (Report)Reply

    Wonderful to see you writing about music Paige. In all of my travels I find the absence of poetry about music somwhat perplexing in that music is poetry in motion..Sitting in a club with all my senses dispersed on a napkin I did write the basis of 'Jazzman', and every reading carries me back to that moment...etched in my mind forever.....the time....the place....the sights....the sound.....the scenery....the smells....the moods.....the smoke....the people......
