Now I'm getting expressive in my pieces! This piano composition is a nocturne. It tells the story of me as a boy having a bad day, and during the evening I went outside to contemplate. When I looked at the stars above me, they seemed to coax and calm me like a mother would to her child. It fills me with peace. That's the inspiration behind the piece. Time to hear what the listeners have to say about this!
F# minor is always kind of a lamenting-type key... A major is my favorite, so it's like the underbelly of happiness to me.
Lament, nostalgia, reminiscence, etc. Those types of words will work.
To answer your second question, it admittedly does kind of bother me that it follows the chord progression over and over... maybe you can avoid this by putting some voices in canon with each other? It wouldn't normally on its own, but I think the fact that this piece is clearly laid out into different sections makes it more apparent.
Aw, these are adorable! I don't really want to put review criticism on this one, because whenever I write "children's" pieces, they always end up either atonal or polytonal... i guess I just don't like the simplistic texture of those kinds of music. I can tell that's not at all what you were going for.
Good work; I hope she likes them.
