Here’s Canto 3 of THIS ANCIENT FOREST (the first two cantos can be found under Art Songs in the Categories pull-down menu). It’s a poem in my Joe’s Art Songs collection, in which I read my poem while improvising on the piano. The illustration is courtesy of the artistic genius of Simon Kogan (simonkogan.com)
The poem is about where we of the North Pacific Coast work, pray, live and love. It’s about our birth and death and re-birth. It’s about our present. It’s about eternity. It’s about a place we hold dear.
