Tief von fern ['from far away']
by Richard Dehmel

MIDI sequence (c) 1999 by Joseph L. Monzo

(you should be hearing my MIDI sequence of this piece right now)

    From the white billows of evening
    A star emerges;
    From far away
    The youthful moon advances.

    From far away,
    From the gray billows of morning
    The great arc reaches out
    For the star.
