The Guitarist Tunes Up

With what attentive courtesy he bent
Over his instrument;
Not as a lordly conquerer who could
Command both wire and wood,
But as a man with a loved woman might,
Inquiring with delight
What slight essential things she had to say
Before they started, he and she, to play. 


Frances Darwin Cornford

The meaning of the words: 
Courtesy: politeness.
Lordly: being a lord.
Command: give order.
Conqueror: the defeat attention.
Inquiring: to ask.
Essential: basic.




Paraphrasing + simile: 
With what attentive courtesy he bent
Over his instrument;
The poet says that the guitarist tunes his guitar with kindness and politeness. He loves his guitar and he takes care of it.
Not as a lordly conqueror who could
Command both wire and wood,
But as a man with a loved woman might,
Inquiring with delight
What slight essential things she had to say
Before they started, he and she, to play.
The guitarist plays his guitar not as lord who boss his soldiers and not as a peace of wood but as a man who loves a woman. This man is very happy with the woman and he asks her basic question in order to have a relation with her. Here we have a simile when the poet describes the guitarist as a man and the guitar as a woman. All this before they have a relationship.
