1. and the unbroken sound of pure darkness 2. from her hands a scent of almonds rises 3. the dead are not separate from the living 4. where the rooms of the dark are already known 5. and I am a child before there are words 6. Let me imagine that we will come again when we want to and it will be spring.
Movement titles borrowed from poems of W.S. Merwin. Includes program note by the composer.
