About

Commissioned for Euphony, a girls choir from Kristin School, for their 2010 repertoire. As soon as I found this text I knew that's what the piece would be about.

Bub Bridger - Wild Daisies

If you love me
Bring me flowers
Wild daisies
Clutched in your fist
Like a torch
No orchids or roses
Or carnations
No florist's bow
Just daisies
Steal them
Risk your life for them
Up the sharp hills
In the teeth of the wind
If you love me
Bring me daisies
That I will cram
In a bright vase
And marvel at

Ryan Youens
