As Kingfishers Catch Fire
Grade 9, Burlington High School
"This is my first attempt at a vocal composition, and I decided to challenge myself with a Gerard Manley Hopkins 'sprung rhythm' poem. I'm used to writing without lyrics, so some of the parts might seem disconnected at times. The biggest worry I have is not really having a returning theme. I'm having trouble incorporating similar melodies later on in the song. I am open to any suggestions, and am excited to complete my first piece for voice!"
