AUDIO: Songbook: 2 little whos

Cleaning off the desktop on my computer, I came across this demo version of 2 little whos from my Songbook cycle of Cummings settings. Unfortunately, I didn’t enunciate very well. But the melody and the character of the piece comes though clearly.

The text reads:

2 little whos
(he and she)
under are this
wonderful tree

smiling stand
(all realms of where
and when beyond)
now and here

(far from a grown
–up i&you–
ful world of known)
who and who

(2 little ams
and over them this
aflame with dreams
incredible is)
