Sheet Music: Score
Oak : for viola and cello / Me-Lee Hay.
by Me-Lee Hay (2018)
This piece was written as as response to the beautiful poem by Deb Westbury that speaks of the stately Oak tree that stands proudly at the Varuna Writers Centre, Blue Mountains. Varuna is recognised as Australia's pre-eminent institution for writing development, and is central to a thriving community and is in partnership with CreateNSW and Australia Council for the Arts.
'Oak', by Deb Westbury
There is only this one hour of
and the trunk of the great oak
taking up all the window,
in the rain.
Once I wrapped it with my
and pressed an ear against it
to the sound of water
seeping through moss and ferns
gathering into cascades
singing over stones.
And all of this
as if the oak was a long well
from which the sky drew
music and water
