Creative Musicians Retreat (CMR) 2019 - Composers Forum III

by The Walden School

"The way of progress was never swift nor easy.” (Marie Curie) "Very little can be done under the spirit of fear." (Florence Nightingale) "We dream till we no longer have the strength to dream; those dreams against which we so struggle; those dreams go at last." (Florence Nightingale) "Prejudice is more violent the blinder it is." (Elizabeth Blackwell) "Fearfully, cautiously, and distrustingly must we take many of our steps, for we see a little way at best, and we can foresee nothing at all." (Maria Mitchell) "But our best and wisest refuge from our troubles is in our science." (Ada Lovelace) "We have a hunger of the mind. The more we gain, the more is our desire." (Maria Mitchell) "Let each defeat be a source of a new endeavor, and each victory the strengthening of our spirit." (Euphemia Haynes) "The breath of a nation's progress." (Maria Mitchell) We still need more progress.
Climb the Mountains John Muir Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer. Camp out among the grasses and gentians of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature's darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. Climb the mountains, Taste the freedom, Nature’s Peace, Walk quietly. (Text adapted from Our National Parks, by John Muir, 1901.)
Sestina Helps Pontypool My Hands Into Loving Jahman Hill These hands are meant to love. Love these, too. Hands mean ours. Our love meant these hands, too. To our hands, love these meant. Meant to these are love hands. Hands meant love. Too are these Love hands. These mean to ours These hands are meant to love. These are meant to love. These hands too love. These hands meant love. These hands mean love. These hands love. These hands are meant to love. Love these hands, too. Love these hands, Hands meant to love. These meant love, once. Are meant to. These hands are meant to love. These hands are meant to. These hands are meant. These hands are. These hands. These. These hands are meant to love. O, love me, hands. Rant, seethe at Me. Revel on the sand, soot, an' heat Sea rotten lovemates, the hand Shots at me an end or the leave Heart not love man, sees Death.
We came whirling Out of nothingness Scattering stars like dust The stars made a circle And in the middle we dance There is a life force within your soul Seek that life There is a gem in the mountain of your body Seek that mine Oh traveler, if you are in search of That Don't look outside, look inside yourself And seek That -Rumi
Break, Break, Break Alfred, Lord Tennyson Break, break, break, On thy cold gray stones, O Sea! And I would that my tongue could utter The thoughts that arise in me. O, well for the fisherman's boy, That he shouts with his sister at play! O, well for the sailor lad, That he sings in his boat on the bay! And the stately ships go on To their haven under the hill; But O for the touch of a vanish'd hand, And the sound of a voice that is still! Break, break, break At the foot of thy crags, O Sea! But the tender grace of a day that is dead Will never come back to me.
