Far in a Western Brookland for High Voice & Piano

David Lewiston Sharpe


Scoring High Voice Piano

Duration: 3 mins approx. ________

Far in a western brookland That bred me long ago The poplars stand and tremble By pools I used to know. There, in the windless night-time, The wanderer, marvelling why, Halts on the bridge to hearken How soft the poplars sigh. He hears: no more remembered In fields where I was known, Here I lie down in London And turn to rest alone. There, by the starlit fences, The wanderer halts and hears My soul that lingers sighing About the glimmering weirs. A.E. Housman A Shropshire Lad, lii
