Her Violin

Nimble fingers fly
Upon the gilded strings
Yielding to the beauty
Of emotive melodies.

The bow strokes the chord
A sigh of ecstasy
Breathes into the air
Erasing enmity.

Her softly swaying dance
A fluid flowing stream
From the pressing of a chord
To the humming of a string.

Its magic twirls the air
Awakening in dreams
Soothing stormy minds
And evoking memories.

I love your wording throughout this poem: "From the pressing of a chord, to the humming of a string..." It's just elegantly put. I love the sound of violins, and you captured its beauty perfectly.
