Oxford Lieder Festival Live Online


Lonely Night

Part of a series or song cycle:

Seven Sappho Songs

Lonely Night

Once you lay upon my bosom,
while the long blue silver moonlight walked the plain
with that pure passion all your own.
Now the moon is gone,
the Pleiads gone, the dead of night is going,
slips the hour, and on my bed I lie alone.
