If hands could free you, heart, by Philip Larkin
Francis Poulenc - Improvisations No. 7 in C major
with Pascal Rogé
If hands could free you, heart,
...Where would you fly?
Far, beyond every part
Of earth this running sky
Makes desolate? Would you cross
City and hill and sea,
...If hands could set you free?
I would not lift the latch;
...For I could run
Through fields, pit-valleys, catch
All beauty under the sun--
Still end in loss:
I should find no bent arm, no bed
...To rest my head.
thank you Roxana for the poem
thank you vv for the music
