In Light Surrounded

Program Note

After Death, A Prayer

Now while my lips are living

Their words must stay unsaid,

And will my soul remember

To speak when I am dead?

Yet if my soul remembered

You would not heed it, dear,

For now you must not listen,

And then you could not hear.

Until my heart is quenched at length

And I have left the land of men,

Oh, let me love with all my strength

Careless if I am loved again.

- Sarah Teasdale 1884 - 1933
