Drifting on the edge of a dream

Dancing on the tail of a song

Swimming in a sea of violet soft clouds

In the lavender stillness of dawn

The quiet of the night does fade

As the first of the morning birds wake

From the spark of day shines a ray of hope

For this day is mine to make.

– Meggan Tavel


Composer’s Notes


This piece was commissioned by the Flower Mound High School Women’s Choir, under the direction of Dr. Mark Rohwer. The composer sent the choir a number of different poems for them to choose from, and they selected this one, a new poem by the composer’s cousin, Meggan Tavel.
