Feminine Fusion

S4-14: Words and Music, Part 2


In winter
all the singing is in
the tops of the trees

White-Eyes, a poem by Mary Oliver


Something a little different for this episode.  Poems by women, coupled with music written or performed by women.  No explanations, no stories, just the pairing of these two art forms.
