Paperwhites no. 6

"Some day, o miracle! a flower will blossom."

As I'm waiting for our paperwhites to bloom, I'm drawn to the above mentioned line of text from Beethoven's song, Adelaïde. The poem is by Friedrich von Matthisoon.

If you're interested in listening to "Adelaide" as you wait for the paperwhites to bloom, you might enjoy listening to this Hyperion recording by Stephan Genz in the Conservatory Library.
