Score:
Setting of a poem by David Dunning extolling the virtues of idleness and its effects in each season.
It is performed here by the composer (multitracking)

These are the words of the original poem:

When autumn harvests are full grown
and luscious fruits to me are shown,
piled plump and rich till stomachs groan
when autumn harvests are full grown
ripe juices puddle on the tongue,
and winter I forget in gurgling song.

Once when the fresh new spring was here
I lavished though to sow the year
oh dreaming seasons never interfere with worldly bounty,
scorned the prudent song and prayed March winds to buffet time along

Soon in the heat of summer haze
I floundered on through deep green maize,
where heavy herds lowed as they grazed,
I saw that I would reap in thought among the rich;
and time moved on with busy song, now in the heat of summer
Now winter creeps between the sashes
and rain upon the window lashes
while wild wind moans round rafters dashes
and I to annual poverty belong,
yet know that spring flows richly on in song

When autumn harvests are full grown
and luscious fruits to me are shown,
piled plump and rich till stomachs groan
when autumn harvests are full grown
ripe juices puddle on the tongue,
and winter I forget in gurgling song.
