Oh Would I Were the Roses is a setting based on the poem "A Song to Eleonora Duse in "Francesca da Rimini" by Sara Teasdale. This simple, but beautiful and lyrical poetry evokes a powerful emotional response, a sense of longing and a deeply passionate heart... A direct reflection of the life of the poet.

Oh would I were the roses, that lie against her hands,
The heavy burning roses she touches as she stands!
Dear hands that hold the roses, where mine would love to be,
Oh leave, oh leave the roses, and hold the hands of me!

*This work was originally performed in Cb major.
