A Poem, para Gloria a cappella chamber choir

Š 1992


now air is air and thing is thing:no bliss of heavenly earth beguiles our spirits,whose miraculously disenchanted eyes live the magnificent honesty of space. Mountains are mountains now;skies now are skies and such a sharpening freedom lifts our blood as if whole supreme this complete doubtless universe we’d(and we alone had)made -yes;or as if our souls,awakened from summer’s green trance,would not adventure soon a deeper magic:that white sleep wherein all human curiosity we’ll spend (gladly, as lovers must)immortal and the courage to receive time’s mightiest dream

e.e.cummings, no. 3 from 95 Poems (1958)
