Never the Same

← Return to Sights / Sounds

for soprano and piano (1.5 min.)

One of the first pieces I ever wrote, it was a collaboration with my father, Eliezer Margolis, who wrote the text. ┬áHere’s the text:

winding intimation

first I was afraid, then I gave up my fear;

each turning took me down, into amethyst clear

rippling glimpses

below the surface shimmers

into plumbless depth;

first I was afraid, then I gave up my fear

tracing the arc of the summer sun

spiraling excursion

that instant the day gave up its heat

I was drawn into unknowing:

why the same is never the same
