The Violinist

The Violinist

So near that I could see the toil
Of her face muscles, a pulse like a moth
Fluttering under the fine skin,
And the indelible veins of her smooth brow.

I could see, too, the twitching of the fingers,
Caught temporarily in art’s neurosis,
As we sat there or warmly applauded
This player who so beautifully suffered
For each of us upon her instrument.

The Musician
R.S. Thomas

    • Thank you very much, Mabel. When I came across Thomas’ poem, I had the same impression too. Vindication! :). I use both the X-E1 and X-E2 equally, but for low light and long zoom shots, i prefer to shoot with the X-E2 for its better low noise and AF performance. Sorry for the belated reply, i missed your comment earlier.
