mvt. 5  from “The Lost Words”

by Ramona Luengen

featuring Elektra Women’s Choir with chamber instruments: director – Morna Edmundson


Cabinet-maker, could you craft me a conker?
Oil its wood, burnish its veneer, set it glowing
  from within?
Never. Not a chance. No hope at all.
King, then, could you command me a conker?
  Compel its green spikes to grow, its white plush
  to thicken? Impossible. Impractical. Inconceivable.
Engineer, surely you could design me a conker?
  Refine its form, mill its curves and edges?
  Manufacture me that magic casket?
  Unfeasible. Unworkable. Unimaginable.
Realize this (said the Cabinet-maker, the King and
  the Engineer together), conker cannot be made,
  however you ask it, whatever word or tool you use,
  regardless of decree. Only one thing can conjure
  conker – and that thing Is tree.
