By Sara WynnPublished about a year ago 1 min read

Long-winded lark, lamenting life,

liberating lone lost;

larghetto, latent leitmotif,

luring lullaby loft.


Lointain; life-like Lieder, looming.

Leaf-laden laureate,

loosen leprous lies-- lead,

legendary lark, low, land-locked.


Leidenschaftlich, lacrimoso,

like-minded lunatic.

Love-levied lest loyal light leer,

labyrinth lyricist.


larghetto (Italian): slower than andante, but not as slow as largo; musical tempo.

leitmotif (English): derived from German word leitmotiv; a recurrent theme throughout a musical or literary composition, associated with a particular person, idea, or situation.

lointain (French): far away, in the distance; musical direction.

Lieder (German): Songs with piano accompaniment circa 1800-1900, wherein the poem is a great work of art in its own right, often more than the composer's equal.

leidenschaftlich (German): passionately; musical direction.

lacrimoso (Italian, Spanish): tearfully, sad; musical direction.

    This is a beautiful and intricate poem that captures the essence of lamenting life and the longing for something more. The use of musical terms adds an additional layer of depth and complexity to the piece, and creates a sense of harmony and rhythm. I love the line "luring lullaby loft," which evokes a sense of comfort and safety amidst the chaos of life. The use of alliteration throughout the poem adds to its musicality and enhances the overall beauty of the piece. Your mastery of language is evident in the way you use words to create vivid imagery and convey deep emotions. This is truly a work of art that showcases your talent and creativity. Well done!
