This choral setting of Emily Dickenson's poem by the same title is set within a contemplative 5/4 meter. An agitato middle section adds dramatic contrast.  Composed during the summer of 2020 amid the COVID 19 pandemic, this piece offers a universal message of hope through tenacity.
Pedagogically, the piece offers opportunities to explore breath control and phrasing over long sustained notes, blending in unison, consonant and dissonant harmonies, and a sense of escape from the "squareness" of more common time signatures.
