Commissioned by the Utah Music Educators Association for the 2019 Women's Honor Choir, now available for SATB choir.
A setting of a universal text by Sara Teasdale about faith and discovery:
One by one, like leaves from a tree,
All my faiths have forsaken me;
But the stars above my head
Burn in white and delicate red,
And beneath my feet the earth
Brings the sturdy grass to birth.
I who was content to be
But a silken-singing tree,
But a rustle of delight
In the wistful heart of night,
I have lost the leaves that knew
Touch of rain and weight of dew.
Blinded by a leafy crown
I looked neither up nor down –
But the little leaves that die
Have left me room to see the sky;
Now for the first time I know
Stars above and earth below.
