Andrew Ager (b.1962) text by Bliss Carman Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) "Campfirc of the Sun" Song-cycle for tenor, cello and piano (2002) Words: Bliss Carman Music: Andrew Ager The Poor Traveller I came to a roadside dwelling, With great eaves low and wide, Asking my way to the village, And they bade me step inside. Welcome and cheer they gave mc -Were comrades loving and strong; And they bade me wait for supper, But I could not stop so long. Nothing I brought to the house, But the garb of ruddy and tan, Suited for pleasure or for wear, Befitting a roving man. Nothing I brought to the Inn But the traveller's cloak I wore; And that, when I came away, I needs must drop by the door. Epitaph With the orient in her eyes, Life my mistress lured me on, "Knowledge", said that look of hers, "Shall be yours when all is done." Like a pomegranate in halves, "Drink me", said that mouth of hers. And I drank who now am here, Where my dust with dust confers. Spring Song 2 When the flowery hand delivers All the mountain-prisoned rivers, And thy great heart beats and quivers To revive the days that were, Make me over, mother April When the sap begins to stir! Take my dust and all my dreaming, Count my heart-beats one by one, Send them where the winters perish; Then some golden noon re-cherish And restore them in the sun, Flower and scent and dust and dreaming, With their heart-beats every one! Set me in the urge and tide drift Of the steaming hosts a-wing! Breast of scarlet, throat of yellow, Raucous challenge, wooings mellow — Every migrant is my fellow, Making northward with the spring. Loose me in the urge and tide-drift Of the streaming host a-wing! Give me the old drink for rapture, The delirium to drain; Al l my fellows drank in plenty At the three score Inns and twenty From the mountains to the main Give me the old drink for rapture, The delirium to drain! Once You Lay Upon My Bosom Once you lay upon my bosom While the long blue silver moonlight walked the pi With that pure passion all your own. Now the moon is gone. The Pleiades gone, The dead of night is going slips the hour And on my bed I lie alone. Make me over, mother April, When the sap begins to stir! 3 Fireflies The fireflies across the dusk, And flashing signals through the gloom, Courageous messengers of light, That dare immensities of doom. About the seeding meadow grass, Like busy watchmen in the street, They come and go they turn and pass, Lighting the way for beauty's feet. Or up they float on viewless wings, To twinkle high among the trees, And rival with soft glimmerings . The shining of the Pleiades. The stars that wheel above the hill, Are not more wonderful to see, Nor the great tasks that they fulfill, More needed in eternity. Hem and Haw Hem and Haw were the sons of sin, Created to shally and shirk, Hem lay 'round and Haw looked on While God did all the work. Hem was a fogy, and Haw was a prig, For both had the dull, dull mind; And whenever they found a thing to do, They yammered and went it blind. Hem was the father of bigots and bores; As the sands of the sea were they, And Haw was the father of all the tribe Who criticize today. But God was an artist from the first, And knew what He was about, While over his shoulder sneered these two, And advised him to rub it out. They prophesied ruin ere man was made; "Such folly must surely fail!" And when he was done, "Do you think, my Lord, He's better without a tail?" And still in the honest working world, With posture and hint and smirk, These sons of the devil are standing by While Man does all the work. Tlie Campfire of the Sun Lo, now, the journeying sun, Another day's march done, Kindles his campfire at the edge of night! And in the twilight pale Above his crimson trail, The stars move out their cordons still and bright. Now in the darkening hush A solitary thrush Sings on in silvery rapture to the deep; While brooding on her nest, The wandering soul has rest, And earth receives her sacred gift of sleep.
