Only My Dreams |SSAA Chorus, Flute| 5m
Notes from the publisher
This famous William Butler Yeats text has never been set with such originality. Ron Kean has outdone himself with this piece, attaining new artistic heights in expression.
Describing the vulnerable qualities our hopes and dreams embody, Kean shimmers a chord with improvised overtones that demand new definitions in sound.
High schools, colleges and festivals will clamor for this wonderful work.
The Cloths of Heaven
William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light;
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
