Abstract/Artist Statement

The lyrics are taken from the poem "Life" by Henry Van Dyke. The poem itself is written in a modern sonnet format. The stanzas remain the same proportions (lines of 3, 3, 3, and 2) but the rhyme scheme and sentence markers are not standard. The piece begins with lines that start as one note that blossoms into full, rich chords. These chords being to move in shapes that have lines that twist throughout them until finally stark chords revel themselves. As with all traditional sonnets, the piece ends with a silver lining in last two lines of the poem.
