She Tells Her Love -- Robert Graves She tells her love while half asleep, In the dark hours, With half-words whispered low: As Earth stirs in her winter sleep And puts out grass and flowers Despite the snow, Despite the falling snow.
I love this poem... I posted it at my blog a few weeks back. :)
Me too!Have you heard the Morten Lauridsen song cycle version?
Have you heard the Lee Hoiby song??I played it with a mezzo a couple of years ago... it's funny how you HEAR lyrics like this instead of reading them, if that's the way you knew them first. I'd almost forgotten it was a poem. I'll check out the Lauridsen version now. :)-SS
SS,We performed the Lauridsen as a choral-orchestral collaboration in our junior year. ^__^So you probably will recognize it.But you weren't in Choraliers or Collegiate Chorale then, right?
