For High Voice and Piano: I Do Not Sleep was composed in 2005. Originally these lyrics were thought to be a traditional Native American text, but current scholarship indicates this poem was written in 1932 by Mary Elizabeth Frye. Duration: 2:15 The recording heard on this page features Christopher McCafferty, tenor, and Sandy Rawson, piano, performing at the Pleasure for the Ear concert in Seattle on February 8, 2008."Do not stand at my grave and weep.I am not there, I do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blowI am the diamond glint on snow.I am the sunlight on ripened grain,I am the gentle autumn rain.When you wake in the morning hush,I am the swift uplifting rushOf quiet birds in circling flight.I am the soft starlight of night.Do not stand at my grave and weep.I am not there, I do not sleep.".
