Vorfrüling ['earliest spring']
by Ferdinand Avenarius

MIDI sequence (c) 1999 by Joseph L. Monzo

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

    Softly enter --
    No longer in deep sleep,
    In light slumber only
    Lies the countryside;
    And the blackbird's early call
    Already blends lovely morning images
    Into his dream.
    Softly enter --
