Silken Serenade

CXLIX.

How I loved to play Schubert Serenade, though violin is so much lovelier than piano for it.

Source





Serenade |ˌserəˈnād|noun

A piece of music sung or played in the open air, typically by a man at night under the window of his lover.

Below The Windowsill


The silence of the night

Was shattered by

Silken sounds

From Spanish guitar

Below the windowsill.


As from a yonder hill

It seemed to waft.

It seemed a distant world away!

Yet here he was!

Below this windowsill.


A night so soft and still,

Before he came to stir it,

How could it be

For only me

Below my windowsill?


It was a thrill -

Those magic strains

Which carried on the breeze

From ground below

That fateful windowsill.


Long ago he played until

The crack of dawn

Returned the break of day

To stir its hustle-bustle

Below the windowsill.


〰©Nellieanna Hay


Only one

Can fill my heart.

~ He alone

Makes the music start.


When he is near I glow.

His heart, his soul,

~ His mind,

His love, I know.


〰©Nellieanna Hay



I miss your silken touch,

Your fragrant skin,

Your warm embrace.

I miss your voice,

Caressing eyes,

Strong sweet face.

I miss your everything,

〰Your Self,

Which time cannot erase -

This total love.


〰©Nellieanna Hay



At twilight's magic hour

A serenade steals sweetly

Through a rosy mist,

The moment kissed

By magic imagery

Interrupted only by a chime

Somewhere afar.


Languid thoughts which are

Predominant push fore

To play upon my heart strings

Like limpid notes upon the staff

Of life's own serenade.


〰©Nellieanna Hay

Lovely artwork and appropriate musical videos clearly support your message. I did have trouble interpreting the first stanza, though. And, perhaps the definition of serenade could go at the beginning of this hub.

Very lovely, Nellieanna. You are a master of your craft. I voted this "thumb up" and "Beautiful." Thank you for reminding me of my heart's feeling, which I often neglect through my mental engagement. ***

Hi there, Ms. Pot. I read this hub last night shortly after you published it. (Yes, I was still up and about to go to bed. Just checked my email one last time and a notification popped in as I was doing so.) But, I was too tired to comment. These have a bit of a wistful tone to them, unlike some of your others. They're very beautiful, Nellieanna. ~Ms. Kettle.

Dear Randi - Welcome to my first visitor! I appreciate what you said so much. Thank you for it and the votes too! Hugs!


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Marie, Thank you for the very thoughtful comments. In a very compact sense, the first poem was sort of a paean to the clarity of the heart when the intellect, great as it is, can be somewhat purblind or confused, certainly in matters of the music of the soul. I agree that sometimes one can tend to favor the mind and neglect the heart's promptings, though I tend to see them as a wonderful pair when working in smooth harmony! Sometimes, though, either of them tends to speak up to one more urgently - which may be a good thing, too! If it arouses a conflict, then it's probably a good time to 'sleep on it' and allow for the harmony to restore.

I appreciate the suggestion of where the definition of serenade might better be placed. Worthy of consideration. It was placed with fine-tuned consideration near the "Windowsill" poem, which related to it with the Spanish guitar serenading under the beloved's windowsill. But I surely see your point, as well. It would relate to the entire theme more at the beginning. Thank you for it!

Martie, my beloved CD! I knew you'd love the music! Thank you, dear heart! I know how precious and few your free hours are, so am honored you looked in on my hub! Big hugs.

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Shan, -hehe - I see I was found out. Now you know why it was too late to reply to your email after I'd finally hit the 'Publish' button here! But, MsKettle - since you were still up and about, my caution was for naught! tee hee. But it spared your being found out, as well!

You may find that in my collections of poems for hubs, some wistfulness often makes an appearance, though, to me, it expresses a valued and welcome kind of wishful. Some of my poetry was written at various times of my life, also, when various feelings predominated.

But being fully able to really feel all my feelings is precious to me, besides keeping me reminded that I'm fully alive! ;-) Feelings in harmony with one's intellectual ability are equally vital in keeping the windows to the mind & soul sparkly, as well as in generally staying alive and well. Besides, one is 'all of a piece' - and should never forget it!

Thank you, my dear friend, for returning to comment. Hope you got some rest! I did. I set the alarm for 9:30, but of course, my inner alarm woke me up earlier; but mercifully, I went back to sleep till it went off. Had stuff to do when I got up; am just now eating the last of my morning meal and getting to the computer @ nearly 1PM.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Lurana, hello! Thank you for the lovely words. I like the title, too. I love silken imagery; and it fits serenades so well, even the sparkly ones.

There were images I'd thought about using, but they weren't from the chosen palette (and I've already driven blue into the ground! hehe). Anyway, serenades just naturally have a warmer tone; to me, they're more associated with warm weather than with cold. I've written poetry about the interaction of colors and music, in fact.

But serenades are often teamed with water and sea, moonlight and night, birds and flickering candlelight, so of course, they are versatile in their color-associations. Mine tended to relate with summer evenings and even more arid scenarios, it seems.

Billy! I'm honored you chose my serenades to begin your day! Here, it is a lovely Sunday morning (well- it's now poured over into afternoon here in the CDT zone). It would still be AM there in your PNW! Time zones are fascinating and such a basic feature of internet mingling!

Thank you for the gracious visit and words, kind sir!

You have perfect balance, my friend!

shanmarie 3 years ago from Texas

Nellieanna, you are certainly one of the most alive people I know! Not to worry about the email reply. I don't think I said anything that necessitated a quick reply, if one at all. Besides, I already know your very adamant opinion on the matter. hehe. At least you might be gratified to know that I know you are right in this instance, though I also know your intent is not to be right or wrong.

Glad you got some rest instead! Maybe I should've kept my post bewitching hour activities quiet. Haha. I suppose I'd still be a kettle either way, though, whether you knew it or not!

As for the wistfulness, I think that is a good quality. It certainly is not one to shun. Life and thoughts can be wistful at times. That's part of the beauty of it. And you certainly are very good about capturing mood and emotion with words as well as other more profound concepts.

Not only do you write poetry, dear Nellieanna, that is memorable, appealing and inventive, you also choose images and music that are the perfect accompaniment. Carly and Rachael were exquisite and Shubert, of course, beyond comparison. This is a visual as well as aural treat. Thank you, m'luv.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Dear Leslie! Thank you for the visit and lovely comments about my hub! Don't we all have a mixture of romance, longing and strength in our arsenals of being? Balance has been a necessity all my life. I'm really an obsessive person who can so focus on something that I literally see nothing else! haha. So I had to learn equilibrium/balance. George always talked about moderation being the key. I never fully mastered that, but it's an element of balance, perhaps. I'd go for excess if my system could stand it. hehe. But. . . .

I forbid worrying about me! I can almost handle forgiveness if it's given with a gracious smile or, better still, with raucous laughter. ;-)

Haven't really been absent, just preoccupied. But I have been a bit concerned about you, m'dear!

I admit that I mostly check into FB to be sure I'm not being rude (which I must have been to overlook a note from you on there!) - - and to spy on unsuspecting relatives whom I seldom, if ever, hear from otherwise. Everyone seems to be on there! Would love to speak with you there. I'll be more attentive! Hugs.


shanmarie profile image

shanmarie 3 years ago from Texas

Oh, pssshhht, you know I meant more than alive in just the literal sense! Though, there is definitely something to be said for noticing someone is literally alive, too, isn't there? Haha


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Hello, dear Shan - - I am alive, that's quite so. Thank you for noticing! :-)

In my begun-but-suspended email reply, I'd mentioned that I'd run the matter in the ground & needed to let it go, if only because of the risk of nagging, which is foreign to my nature! I was firm, though, wasn't I? No, you're correct. It's neither a matter of being right or wrong in that instance but of being sorry later if I had been remiss in mentioning it. I'll be gratified only if I know that it was either effective for you or totally unnecessary for you! That was my only concern, trust me.

Yes, I understand being a silent pot or kettle. hehe

My George used to call me his free spirit and other names of recognition of my wistful qualities. My dad acknowledge that all the women in his family were 'elusive'. hehe - I think he meant it in a complimentary way: impossible to capture or to quite classify. There is a wistful side to that, too, I think; pursuing one's own wistful butterflies makes one a bit hard to capture, perhaps. In any case, if one possesses any such qualities, those qualities cannot be shunned or wished away. Much more sensible to just embrace them as part of oneself, as they are.

You're absolutely right that life and one's thoughts are wistful at times. How dull it would be otherwise! If these things are part of who one is, there's no need to capture or invent them. They come out with the flow of one's honest expressions about things.

ps - yes, of course - literally alive makes being spiritually, emotionally, mentally and imaginatively alive so much easier to pull off & being accredited with being literally alive helps keep the emergency vehicles from being called to one's door to gather & haul off the remains! ;-) tee hee

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Dear DrBJ - I am doubly thrilled that you listened to and appreciated the music on here! My first thought was Schubert's Serenade which I've loved all my life. Then was delighted to find the Carly rendition of the lovely favorite 'big band' tune, 'Moonlight Serenade'. She did it such special justice -- and more! I was actually looking for a u-tube version of that other classic, 'Serenade in Blue' by Patrice Munsel, which I have on iTunes and love, but which seems not to be available on u-Tube, when I discovered the gorgeous one by Rachael Price, - maybe even better. It's a bit jazzier, anyway.

So I was pleased with how it all worked together as I hoped it would. Thank you for your gracious comments, dear lady!

SilentReed profile image

SilentReed 3 years ago from Philippines

Because the Philippines was colonize by Spain, the practice of serenading known as the "harana" was also common here. Unfortunately the romantic tradition is now in the past. A hopeful suitor would sing love songs often accompanied by the guitar below his love's window or balcony. If the girl fancies the young man, she would come to the window or out the balcony. Sometimes the light inside the house remain close or worse the parents would come out to scold the suitor that it's late in the night and they are trying to get some sleep. Something your good nature would never allow. This comment should have ended here....

So who serenade below my windowsill? ask the lady/"It is I !" says the frog prince/ I hop,hop,hop from yonder "Secret Sanctuary"/ in hope for a glimpse/ of a maiden most fair in all the land/ strumming my trusty Spanish guitar/ I croak,croak,croak till I am hoarse/ that she might yield and favor me with a kiss :)

....couldn't resist the poetic opportunity:)) but what is romance ( dull even with all the serenading ;) without a little sense of humor? It's what gives it the Oomph and the squeal of delightful surprise.:)


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

I hadn't thought about the Philippines having a serenading tradition, but of course, it would, with the Spanish influence! Texas has a strong influence from Mexico, where serenading is (or was back then) traditional; and when I was in college, it was not at all unusual for someone to serenade the girls' dormitory with gorgeous guitar strains.

Oh, yes, romance should be lighthearted!

Thank you for the poetry and fun comment, SilentReed!

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Dear Monis Mas - Thank you for your lovely comment. I suppose experience is needed to write from the heart, for sure.

At a personal level, longing is among the 'alive' emotions, isn't it? If it had not been pleasant and valuable, why else would it be remembered longingly? How bleak it would be to be cut off from those memories and experiences!

When one can long for something, it is a mixture of so many feelings. If any of them is slighted, the value of it is lessened. It can be painful, but it is also the sense of being open to all one feels deeply and a reminder of a love or an experience to be treasured and even nurtured. These things are also what can invite new experiences into the present which are as sweet and valuable as all that one is privileged to remember.

She'd earlier mentioned a hub she'd written about me, and I went to her site to look, but the Mother's Day one hadn't yet posted on her wall.
