Love and Thirst

Music/arrangement © 2016 by Maria and Christopher Clymer Kurtz. Texts “That love is all there is” and “Water is taught by thirst” by Emily Dickinson.

That love is all there is
Is all we know of love.
It is enough the freight should be,
Proportioned to the groove.

Water is taught by thirst
Land, by the oceans passed
Transport, by throe,
Peace, by its battles told
Love, by memorial mould
Birds, by the snow.
