Dickinson Songs, Book 1: An Intimate Nature (2005)
My River runs to thee –
How soft a Caterpillar steps –
Your Riches – taught me – Poverty
Within my Garden rides a Bird
A Thought went up my mind today –
If you were coming in the Fall
I reason, Earth is short –
I felt a Funeral, in my Brain
Good Morning – Midnight
– INTERMISSION –
Dickinson Songs, Book 2: The Unknown Peninsula (2008)
A word is dead
That I did always love
The Moon is distant from the Sea –
I had been hungry, all the Years –
Pain – has an Element of Blank –
She dealt her pretty words like Blades –
To be forgot by thee
A Rat surrendered here
The Whole of it came not at once –
If I’m lost – now
Now I lay thee down to Sleep
The earth has many keys.
