I love the way you start and end this—those four lines flow so naturally, so wonderfully, across the page and down the tongue. It’s a beautiful rhythm to begin and end with.

The text choice, however, was a bit daunting at first. It took me a couple of minutes of hit-and-miss before I was able to read the piece without messing up the words. Also, the text color, while beautiful with the background, makes the piece a bit difficult to read in the middle where the sky has lightened—the colors are almost exactly the same, making the text blend in with the background image.

I also felt, at some points in the poem, that the rhythm was being thrown off-balance. Not all of your stanzas follow the same rhythm exactly, but instead change, ever so slightly, from line to line, and that made keeping one specific pace rather difficult for me as I was reading. It feels almost like a staccato piece—whereas the first and last stanzas flow so beautifully, the rest comes out in an almost disjointed fashion.

But I LOVELOVELOVE the poem in compilation with the background image. I think you portrayed the emotions of the violin superbly, through the word choices you made as well as the darkness of the sky and background. Over all, this piece is wonderfully well-done. Excellent job!

Very beautiful poem. I like the eerie elegance that just enveloped me as I read it.
The background and the visuals are also very nicely chosen. :D

I think that the sheet music could've been shadowed or dimmed a bit, but other than that,
you should be proud of this composition. It's very well done. :]
