A miracle is just another name for hard work
-Minho in "To The Beautiful You"


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 play the violin and I must say it is the world's most beautiful (and hardest to play) instrument.

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.
