Two of the poems have become popular and better known than their writers, but for the other two, the writers are better known than their poems. The songs, a cycle ending with a reprise of the first song, celebrate American writing of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries while exploring the colours and moods of the tenor voice and piano.
