When I first listened to this music, I felt hearing someone crying. Studying the background confirmed that the sounds were the composer’s cry.

The Concierto de Aranjuez composed by Joaquin Rodrigo was inspired by the gardens at Palacio Real de Aranjuez. The composer attempts to transport the listeners to another place and time through the sounds of nature.

For my current followers, you may have noticed an influx of poetry appearing on my own blog lately. What can I say, it’s simply flowing out of me! Anyhow, I am so excited to hold an “End of Summer Poetry Contest.” Unlike my first Poetry Contest, this contest is themed!
