Demon and Violets

SSA chorus, piano

16:00

 

Text:

1. Light Rain

If not the light rain

Then the mouthing little fish:

Rings on the water.

Andrew Lansdown

 

2. Demon and Violets, part 1

Bent-necked violet,

Under eyes of a demon,

Saying a prayer.

Tomas L. McColt

 

3. Passage

Only empty hands

Did I bring into this world:

Barefoot, I leave it.

 

Coming and going: 

Two ordinary events,

That got entangled.

Kozan Ichikyo, 13th c.

(on the day of his death)

 

4. Demon and Violets, part 2

Amid violets,

A smiling demon rested,

Happily possessed.

Tomas L. McColt
