14 June 2014 – “In the forest he played his flute” from the play “Orpheus and Eurydice”

The following comes from my 2011 play “Orpheus and Eurydice”. Copyright Seán Kane, 2011.

In the forest he played his flute

For all the trees to hear and dance to,

Amongst the trees he was resolute

In his proclamation of God’s love anew.

For here he was most at ease

Amongst the arbours,

Amongst the trees

For here in the woodland he seeks.

O Orpheus, a wife he wants

A beautiful maid to wed,

Come, loving poet sing odes

To the nymphs of the wood.

Come, beautiful voice,

It is your choice.
