Requiescat for mixed choir and piano, on a poem by Oscar Wilde.
The text of this song is written by Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900). Explanation of the titel: "Requiescat in pace" (sometimes: R.I.P.) stands for "may he/she (his/her soul) rest in peace" referring to a dead person.

Requiescat

Tread lightly, she is near
Under the snow,
Speak gently, she can hear
The daisies grow.

All her bright golden hair
Tarnished with rust,
She that was young and fair
Fallen to dust.

Lily-like, white as snow,
She hardly knew
She was a woman so
Sweetly she grew.

Coffin-board, heavy stone,
Lie on her breast.
I vex my heart alone,
She is at rest.

Peace, Peace, she cannot hear
Lyre or sonnet,
All my life's buried here,
Heap earth upon it.
