8.5" x 11" inches. English. Song of Songs 2; Song of Solomon 2.

The text is from The Song of Solomon, King James Version of the Bible. The setting uses ascending lines to accentuate bold phrases, and the piano either plays a triplet figure or sustained notes often in blocked chords. Additionally, the ending leaves the audience wondering if the lover ever did arise, as there are four repeated descending figures in the piano followed by the lowest notes in the piece ending the song. It's exciting writing that allows for multiple interpretations.
