Music for the Solstice: The Sun Never Says



"The Sun Never Says" is an excerpt from a performance by SOUNDING LIGHT offered on the Abendmusik Concert Series at First-Plymouth Church, Lincoln, NE, on September 27, 2019. The concert featured cellist Philip Borter.


Even
After
All this time
The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe
Me."
Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the
Whole
Sky.

Hafiz (translated by Daniel Ladinsky)

  1. Wow! Love this! I discovered Ladinsky's Hafiz translations last year. Happy now to hear this music.
