Then and Now

"Ehmals und jetzt"

"In juengern Tagen war ich das Morgens froh,

Des Abends weint ich, jetzt, da ich aelter bin,

Beginn ich zweifelnd meinen Tag, doch

Heilig and heiter ist mir sein Ende." Friedrich Hoelderlin

"THEN and NOW"

"In my younger days I was fresh and clear in

the morn but weepy by even; now, being older

I often begin my day in madding confusion;

may get lucid and coherent by its ending."

[a perhaps too free translation by nekkid]

Malum Malum Malum

Malo. Malo. Malo. Malo.
Malo: I would rather be
Malo: in an apple-tree
Malo: than a naughty boy
Malo: in adversity.
Malo. Malo. Malo. Malo.

Christina Rossetti wrote the poem and Gustav Holst composed the music for it.

And now we can hear it sung out in the bleak itself by Christ Church Choir, Oxford along with other musical treats:
