A rispetto.

Stoic at the Piano

Adroit the hands; pronounced their skill!
They skip across the eager keys,
The fingers flitting where they will
And drawing forth new melodies.

In contrast stark, the weighty brain
Seems numb to evíry gay refrain;
Withdrawn from skill, unmoved by song,
Obdurately it chugs along.

Excellent! Extra points awarded for the employment of "obdurately."

I know a few of these types haha
I love the contrast between the two stanzas and the word choice between these two opposing forces
