Besides my assignments of woodwind quintet and string quintet (and bassoon sonata for fun), i want to write a piece for solo soprano.

Please give me a original poem with sad/serious tone and subject of moderate length.
1, 2, or 3 parts.
If 1 part, no more than 200 words.
2-3, no more than 400 words.

Of course, credit for words will be given to you, but if you’re sending this to me on lj or email, you will be giving me permission to use it. Thanks in advance.
