This is a setting made of text from W.B. Yeats' (1865 - 1939) play "At the Hawk's Well" (1918).  Michael's setting is challenging and evocative.



“Why should I sleep,” the heart cries,

“For the wind, the salt wind, the sea wind

Is beating a cloud through the skies;

I would wander always like the wind.”

“O wind, O salt wind, O sea wind!”

Cries the heart, “it is time to sleep;

Why wander and nothing to !nd?

Better grow old and sleep.”
