Nature ternua nature
The composition for my D.M.A. document is a song-cycle featuring the poetry of Emily Dickinson, William Carlos Williams, and e.e. cummings. The four poems share the common theme of nature. The selected poems are 'South Winds Jostle Them', 'The Murmuring of Bees' (both by Dickinson), 'Pastoral' (Williams), and 'and what were roses' (cummings). The duration of the song-cycle is 16 minutes.
