    Another poem from H. van Dyke I arranged with piano, synth cellos and ALT flutes (new!). Really fast work during this night, really simple music, but really strong poem. Enjoy, my friends...:-)

    Departure – Henry van Dyke
    Oh, why are you shining so bright, big Sun,
    And why is the garden so gay?
    Do you know that my days of delight are done,
    Do you know I am going away?
    If you covered your face with a cloud, I 'd dream
    You were sorry for me in my pain,
    And the heads of the flowers all bowed would seem
    To be weeping with me in the rain.

    But why is your head so low, sweet heart,
    And why are your eyes overcast?
    Are they clouded because you know we must part,
    Do you think this embrace is our last?
    Then kiss me again, and again, and again,
    Look up as you bid me good-bye!
    For your face is too dear for the stain of a tear,
    And your smile is the sun in my sky.
