Setting of a poem by David Dunning extolling the virtues of idleness and its effects in each season.The sound sample here was the first performance, performed by a singing group in our college back in 1976. The author of the words is singing with the tenors and I am playing the guitar part.These are the words of the original poem:When autumn harvests are full grown and luscious fruits to me are shown, piled plump and rich till stomachs groan when autumn harvests are full grownripe juices puddle on the tongue, and winter I forget in gurgling song. once when the fresh new spring was hereI lavished though to sow the year oh dreaming seasons never interfere with worldly bounty, scorned the prudent song and prayed March winds to buffet time alongSoon in the heat of summer haze I floundered on through deep green maize, where heavy herds lowed as they grazed, I saw that I would reap in thought among the rich; and time moved on with busy song, now in the heat of summerNow winter creeps between the sashes and rain upon the window lashes while wild wind moans round rafters dashesand I to annual poverty belong, yet know that spring flows richly on in songWhen autumn harvests are full grown and luscious fruits to me are shown, piled plump and rich till stomachs groanwhen autumn harvests are full grownripe juices puddle on the tongue, and winter I forget in gurgling song. .
