Songs of Light and Love

Libby Larsen

About this work:
"Songs of Light and Love" sets five poems by May Sarton whose poetry addresses the inner landscapes of human existence. Each of the five poems explores love and commitment with an almost sacred sense of wonder. And each also uses the metaphor of light ever-present even in darkness. In each piece light illuminates love and love is in turn accepted. -Invocation (A Summoning) -The Snow Light (A Rapture) -A Light Left On (A Quietude) -The Fear of Angels (A Beatitude) -Evening Walk in France (A Gymnopedie) For more information about this piece, contact: Suzanne L.
