Oh earth, oh dewy mother, breathe on us
Something of all thy beauty and thy might,
So begins this dramatic musical tribute to earth. Audiences will love this piece.
A programming idea: open AND close with this, letting it come around again.

Oh earth, oh dewy mother, breathe on us
Something of all thy beauty and thy might,BR> Us that are part of day, but most of night,BR> Not strong like thee, but ever burdened thusBR> With glooms and cares, things pale dolorousBR> Whose gladest moments are not wholly bright;BR> Something of all thy freshness and thy light,BR> Oh earth, oh mighty mother, breathe on us.BR>BR> Oh mother, who wast long before our day,BR> And after us full many an age shalt be.BR> Careworn and blind, we wander from thy way:BR> Born of thy strength, yet weak and halt are weBR> Grant us, oh mother, therefore, us who pray,BR> Some little of thy light and majesty.

By Archibald Lampman (1861-1899)
