about

A song using Emily Dickinson's poetry.

lyrics

There's a certain slant of light
on a winters afternoon
when it comes the landscape listens
shadows hold their breath
The saddest sound the sweetest sound
the maddest sound that grows
Birds make it in the spring
at nights delicious close

and it makes us think of what we had
and what can be no more
we almost wish those feathered souls
would go and sing no more

this is my letter to the world
that never wrote to me
the simple truth that nature told
with Tender Majesty

There's a certain slant of light
on a winters afternoon
when it comes the landscape listens
shadows hold their breath

and it makes us think of what we had
and what can be no more
we almost wish those feathered souls
would go and sing no more
go and sing no more
go and sing no more
