Three Songs of Musing

Song Cycle by Alice Barnett (1886 - 1975)

?. Song at Capri [sung text not yet checked]

When beauty grows too great to bear
    How shall I ease me of its ache, 
For beauty more than bitterness
    Makes the heart break.

Now while I watch the dreaming sea
    With isles like flowers against her breast, 
Only one voice in all the world
    Could give me rest.
