An Ode to the World




An Ode to the World is celebratory in character. It is a setting of excerpts from poetry by William Blake and Sara Teasdale:

William Blake:

'Auguries of Innocence'
To see a World in a Grain of Sand [...]
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand.[...]
Man was made for Joy & Woe [...]
Thro the World we safely go

Sara Teasdale:


I am wild, I will sing to the trees,
I will sing to the stars in the sky,
I love, I am loved, [...],
Now at last I can die!

I am sandaled with wind and with flame,
I have heart-fire and singing to give,
I can tread on the grass or the stars,
Now at last I can live!
