O YOU WHOM I OFTEN

“O You Whom I Often” gives voice to the powerful longing in Whitman’s, a quiet but steady flame, inextinguishable. This is the third of J. Rolfe’s “Three Compositions for Women’s Voices”.

LYRICS

O YOU whom I often and silently come where you are, 
that I may be with you;

As I walk by your side, or sit near, 
or remain in the same room with you,

Little you know the subtle electric fire 
that for your sake is playing within me.

Walt Whitman (1819-1892)
