John Luther Adams' Poem Of The Forgotten for Voice and Piano. Duration: 5 minutes.

This work sets a text by John Haines and is dedicated to Haines on the occasion of his 80th birthday.

I came to this place,
a young man green and lonely.

Well quit of the world,
I framed a house of moss and timber,
called it a home,
and sat in the warm evenings
singing to myself as a man sings
when he knows there is
no one to hear.

I made my bed under the shadow
of leaves, and awoke
in the first snow of autumn
filled with silence. - John Haines
