MARGRETHE-MATHER-Pierrot_-1920

5. Valse de Chopin (Waltz of Chopin)

As a bleached drop of blood
Stains a sufferer’s lips,
So lurks within this music
The lure of annihilation.

In untamed strains the chords disorder
Despair’s icy dream-
As a bleached drop of blood
Stains a sufferer’s lips.

Fierce, exulting, sweet, and yearning,
Melancholy dismal waltzes,
You cling to my consciousness,
You are borne on my thoughts
Like a bleached drop of blood.

Schoenberg Pierrot Lunaire (glenn gould and patricia rideout)
