Here's the poem:
The Sun – just touched the Morning –
The Morning – Happy thing –
Supposed that He had come to dwell –
And Life would all be Spring!
She felt herself supremer –
A Raised – Ethereal Thing!
Henceforth – for Her – What Holiday!
Meanwhile – Her wheeling King –
Trailed – slow – along the Orchards –
His haughty – spangled Hems –
Leaving a new necessity!
The want of Diadems!
The Morning – fluttered – staggered –
Felt feebly – for Her Crown –
Her unanointed forehead –
Henceforth – Her only One!
Below: When I say my notes were nothing but "chicken scratch," I wasn't joking:
* For the lyrics, I repeat the third and fourth lines of the poem.
* Also, from the seventh line, I repeat the words "for Her -- What Holiday!"
* For the eleventh line, I omitted the word "a" (so "Leaving a new necessity" is "Leaving new necessity).
* I made a change with the music too -- you'll see that I've omitted the 13th bar of music on Page 1.
* I don't have a metronome to note the exact speed -- but play it slow to moderate.
Note: As an introduction, I play the first 8 bars of the song -- but at an octave higher.
If/when I have time, I'll post some more of the songs I have written based on the poems of Emily Dickinson.
