Swallows Travel To And Fro - Poem by Robert Louis Stevenson

SWALLOWS travel to and fro,
And the great winds come and go,
And the steady breezes blow,
Bearing perfume, bearing love.
Breezes hasten, swallows fly,
Towered clouds forever ply,
And at noonday, you and I
See the same sunshine above.

Dew and rain fall everywhere,
Harvests ripen, flowers are fair,
And the whole round earth is bare
To the moonshine and the sun;
And the live air, fanned with wings,
Bright with breeze and sunshine, brings
Into contact distant things,
And makes all the countries one.

Let us wander where we will,
Something kindred greets us still;
Something seen on vale or hill
Falls familiar on the heart;
So, at scent or sound or sight,
Severed souls by day and night
Tremble with the same delight -
Tremble, half the world apart.

    This poem, 'Swallows travel to and fro', has been sent to music by Bob Chilcott for the Coastal Sound International Choral Festival,2007, and was premiered on Wednesday,04 July 2007, at the closing gala concert at the Chandos Pattison Auditorium at the Pacific Academy, Surrey, BC under his baton with 500 children and youth on stage (www.coastalsoundfestival.com) .
    The passion and persuasion of the poem and the song was not only timely, but now even more timeless. The overwhelming excitement and enthusiasm of this premiere reflects the global awareness of the 18 choirs who attended this bienniel festival.
    I commend it to all who are sensitive to global citizenship (www.festaviva.ca) . (Report) Reply
