The poem used in this work was included in a poetry anthology compiled to comfort the children of New York City after the events of September 11, 2001. In this choral setting, which closely follows the mood of the text, a soaring melody wafts over a pulsing piano accompaniment that gradually moves from discord to harmony. Duration: 1:30.
