Song Description

An art song written to the poem "A Farewell" by Alfred Lord Tennyson.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written as a gift to a teacher in Kriya Yoga, honoring transcendence in the "hum of the bees," death of the ego, and eternal beauty.

Lyrics

(Lyrics by Alfred Lord Tennyson, "A Farewell")





Flow down, cold rivulet, to the sea,

Thy tribute wave deliver:

No more by thee my steps shall be,

For ever and for ever.


Flow, softly flow, by lawn and lea,

A rivulet then a river;

No where by thee my steps shall be,

For ever and for ever.


But here will sigh thine alder tree,

And here thine aspen shiver;

And here by thee will hum the bee,

For ever and for ever.


A thousand suns will stream on thee,

A thousand moons will quiver;

But not by thee my steps shall be,

For ever and for ever.
