October’s music poem: Linda Bierds’ Traumerei.
You will have to forgive me — I just moved apartments, cities and jobs (hello, Seattle!) — for leaving you with just this for this month’s Music Poems post. Read Linda Bierds’ “Traumerei“.
(If you want to know more, read it while listening to Traumerei. Or read this about Schumann’s Traumerei and this about Schumann’s life, and then read Linda Bierds’ Traumerei again while listening to this Traumerei.)
And then come back and we can get into an argument about whether or not ‘knowing what it’s about’ matters to the beauty of the poem…
