All Contributors: Emily Doolittle (composer); Elizabeth Bishop (author)

Programme Note:

We lived in a pocket of Time.

It was close, it was warm.

Along the dark seam of the river

the houses, the barns, the two churches, hid like white crumbs

in a fluff of gray willows and elms, til Time made one of his

gestures; his nails scratched the shingled roof. Roughly his hand

reached in,

and tumbled us out.

-Elizabeth Bishop, mid-1950s
