The famous John Keats text is set in a contemporary style with a flowing piano accompaniment. Over one hundred thousand copies are in print of this highly effective piece. Also available for TTBB or SATB.
Shed no tear—O shed no tear!
The flower will bloom another year.
Weep no more—O weep no more!
Young buds sleep in the root’s white core.
Dry your eyes—O dry your eyes,
For I was taught in Paradise
To ease my breast of melodies—
Shed no tear.
