About the Music
Christina Rossetti’s simple poem “Spring Quiet” evokes the shady pleasures of a spring afternoon spent in solitude. Its imagery includes a “robin,” a “thrush,” a “cool green house,” and even “whispering” air, enticing us to rest peacefully. The sea, perhaps representing the rush of the outside world, sounds faintly in the distance. I interpret Rossetti’s vision as an invitation to find a quiet space within ourselves despite the chaos around us.
