Night Sky

"The more of us that sense the vastness of the universe, the better off we will be in this world."

When all the stars are sown
Across the night-blue space,
The endless immense unknown,
In silent thought we face.

As we stand in speechless awe
While it's beauty marches by,
We wonder at the law
Which governs this starlit sky

How small a thing is man
In our universe so vast,
That we should hope or plan
Or dream our dream could last!

- adapted from the poem:
"The Heart of Night" by Bliss Carman

This tune features the Native American Double Flute. After a long evocative rubato section, a rhythmic groove kicks in. The closing section returns once again to the plaintive rubato section.
