A requiem - When I am dead my dearest
Period:Modernism
Composed in:1952
Musical form:song
Text/libretto:Christina (Georgina) Rossetti (1830 - 1894)
Song: "Sing no sad songs for me", published 1952, for SSA chorus and piano.
When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.

Christina Rossetti
(from Goblin Market and other Poems, published 1862)
