Description/Remarks

PEL2011
The Song of Wandering Aengus -

W.B.Yeats’ beautiful poem “The Golden Apples of the Sun” and a traditional Irish melody form the basis of this lyrical arrangement.  Halley has surrounded the melody with lush harmonies to give a very magical and romantic feel to this lovely folk song.

The Song Of Wandering Aengus  

I went out to the hazel wood,
Because a fire was in my head,
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And hooked a berry to a thread;

And when white moths were on the wing,
And mothlike stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout. 

When I had laid it on the floor
I went to blow the fire aflame,
But something rustled on the floor,
And someone called me by my name:

It had become a glimmering girl
With apple blossom in her hair
Who called me by my name and ran
And faded through the brightening air.

Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone,
And kiss her lips and take her hands;

And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.

 

William Butler Yeats
