Sing no sad song

Text : adapted from poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894)
Music : Fabienne Shaw/Pascale Gorissen
Arrangements: Cromlec’h

Be the green grass above me, with showers and dewdrops wet;
And if you want , remember, and if you want, forget.

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad song for me
And plant no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain

Be the green grass above me, with showers and dewdrops wet
And if you want , remember, and if you want, forget.

And dreaming through the twilight
That does not rise nor set,
Happily I may remember,
And happily may forget.

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad song for me
And plant no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree

Be the green grass above me, with showers and dewdrops wet…

And if you want remember, and if you want forget
