as flower as fire was composed in response to Beethoven's 'Waldstein' Sonata, Op. 53, and the work which was once destined to be the Sonata's middle movement, the Andante Favori, WoO 57.
Further inspiration, along with the title of the work, was taken
from the following poem by Sara Teasdale:
Let it be forgotten, as a flower is forgotten,
Forgotten as a fire that once was singing gold,
Let it be forgotten for ever and ever,
Time is a kind friend, he will make us old.
If anyone asks, say it was forgotten
Long and long ago,
As a flower, as a fire, as a hushed footfall
In a long forgotten snow.
