Subject(s): Composers; Schubert, Franz (1797-1828)

The muffled sobbing of a storm-scourged sea;
The heartache of a lonely hemlock tree;
The anthems that the stars of morning sing;
A brook's thanksgiving when is born the Spring;

The laughter of young birch leaves, drenched with dew;
The rapture creeping meadow grasses through;
The challenge of the pennons of the corn;
A thrush's welcome to the rosy morn;

The matin chime of bluebells softly rung;
The elm's Magnificat when June is young;
The salutation of wind-wakened grain;
The benediction of midsummer rain;

The drowsy plaint drifting through August noons;
The call of nightingales to August moons;
The soft lament of withered walnut leaves;
The memories of garnered barley sheaves;

The song the heart sings when its lord is come;
The thoughts whose exaltation strikes lips dumb;
A soul's mute answer to a soul's mute call;
The longings that are prayers — it voices all!
