Setting of the poem by S N Solomons based on Supervielle's L'Aube dans la chambrefor alto and classical guitar.Performed by the composer...The first light comes,touching the sleeping mind,stroking the head,confirming who it is.Colours prick through the window pane,with silent customary tread.Pale light from Palestine and Javaleans over the bed and spreads.Grey light reluctant to leave Chinapowders the glass deepens its imageas you come close.Yellow light strokes the window pane,sombre light stains the human comedysprawled on the bed.And then the watching soulimmanent, anxious says"All is still well.The substance of our days is whole."No greater pain existsthan to feel pain no more,with the soul helplessbefore locked doors."Alas Time will arrive, and death deprive."Meanwhile take I delightflattering his formguessing his contourbeneath the sheets;sensing his blood seeking complexity,feeling his hands fleeting,stirred by some dream;leaving no tracein Time or Space."Let me think no more thoughtsfor fear he may wake."Let me be quieterthan the leaf that grows.Or the rose.".
