Robert Bode has long been a sought-after American poet, providing deeply moving words for choral and solo music, many of which are included here. This collection of Bode's lyric poetry displays the poet's affection for the things of this world, both physical and emotional. “Songs” of morning, evening, nature, love, music, inspiration, and humor lift up and inspire thought. Most notably, the section focused on songs of justice, war, and healing offers many important messages for this time.
