featuring the National Youth Choir of Canada
Peter captures the spirit of the lovely poem by Carman Bliss.

Whisper, whisper

I hear the spring wind whisper
Above the brushwood fire,
“The world is made forever
Of transport and desire.

“I am the breath of being,
The primal urge of things;
I am the whirl of star dust,
I am the lift of wings.

“I am the splendid impulse
That comes before the thought,
The joy and exaltation
Wherein the life is caught.

I heard the spring light whisper
Above the dancing stream,
“The world is made forever
In likeness of a dream.

I heard the spring rain murmur
Above the roadside flower,
“The world is made forever
In melody and power.

Then Earth to them made answer,
As with a slow refrain
Born of the blended voices
Of wind and sun and rain,
“This is the law of being
That links the threefold chain:
The life we give to beauty
Returns to us again.”

Whisper – breath of being – whisper
