she stood there — sliding into night

an ambient opera for voice, organ, and 2 violoncelli

In tears, the moon says: 
I want to be an orange.

(Oh you, girl, pacing alone 
the final chamber of night)

Where are you going, where?

Orange and Lemon. 
Oh the girl un happy in love! 
(off the pebbles in the water.)
