Flood 2:130:00 / 2:13
Flood is part of a cycle of ten art songs on poems by James Joyce that I wrote during the winter and spring of 2019. Flood uses the metaphor of its namesake to explain the turbulent emotions of love that lurk beneath the surface.
Flood is also available as part of a compilation:
Gold-brown upon the sated flood
The rock-vine clusters lift and sway;
Vast wings above the lambent waters brood
Of sullen day.
A waste of waters ruthlessly
Sways and uplifts its weedy mane,
Where brooding day stares down upon the sea
In dull disdain.
Uplift and sway, O golden vine,
Thy clustered fruits to love’s full flood,
Lambent and vast and ruthless as is thine
James Joyce, 1882 - 1941
