Composed by Cheryl Frances-Hoad
To be the roots. In subsoil where never a ray Descends. Where light never glances.
A birdless bough. A leafless branch.
A spring head in the finest web of thread
That must not break. The hard labor of roots Without respite. (Even winter's sleep is only apparent.) To store. To feed. To quench. To be a mute link Between the bitter end and life. By self denied And crippled to allow the white flower
The celebration of the sun,
The power of beauty's revealment.
To be the roots. And not to envy the flower.
Poetry by V. Belsevica
Music by Pēteris Vasks
Performed by Reinis Zariņš
