“You & I” for voice and harp

Alexandra Olsavsky, soprano Jennifer Ruggieri, harp Text from Rumi’s A Moment of Happiness April 26, 2015 Lasallian Lounge, Chicago, IL   A moment of happiness, you and I sitting on the verandah, apparently two, but one in soul, you and I. We feel the flowing water of life here, you and I, with the garden’s beauty and the birds singing. The stars will be watching us, and we will show them what it is to be a thin crescent moon. You and I unselfed, will be together, indifferent to idle speculation, you and I. The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar as we laugh together, you and I. In one form upon this earth, and in another form in a timeless sweet land. Tweet
