"Have I been asleep for a thousand years?"
I long for thy virginitie.
As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you.
"A human life is dictated by what he can or cannot afford."
"A sensitive existence…"
"came then left so quickly"
The three-act opera by Arnold Schoenberg (in its entirety):
Possibly Schoenberg’s finest work, and certainly one that he held close to his heart, is his unfinished opera, Moses und Aron. More than his play Der biblische Weg, Moses und Aron represents Schoenberg’s finest attempt at meshing his philosophical ideas with his artistry. It is a work that can be approached on many different levels: as an example of his twelve-tone system, as a work of biblical commentary, or as an attempt to work out the problems facing the Jew in the modern world.
A sickness weighs me:
From d’in some sacred eyes,
Piercing every deep—
I am found indown her lovely soul;
Warm and come, I am folded daftly to her.
