Saturday Morning Music Video: In time of daffodils

(reposting this from last year)

From a poem by e.e. cummings

in time of daffodils (who know

in time of daffodils (who know
the goal of living is to grow)
forgetting why, remembering how
in time of lilacs who proclaim
the aim of waking is to dream,
remember so (forgetting seem)
in time of roses (who amaze
our now and here with praise)
forgetting if, remember yes
in time of all sweet things beyond
whatever mind may comprehend,
remember seek (forgetting find)
and in a mystery to be
(when time from time shall set us free)
forgetting me, remember me

Music by Steven Sametz, director of Lehigh University's choral arts program

Sung by Chanticleer.

Another fine poem. Interesting musical setting by Steven Sametz, and as is always true of Chanticleer, a breathtakingly beautiful performance. Thanks for the post.
