Speaking of Fairytales (cavatina)


Suddenly awakening from a dream
in love we were
and you like lovely Snow-white were smiling
while here and there
the most beautiful flowers blossomed
while everywhere
life seemed like the most abundant spring
and I more of a frog than prince charming.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
