Terry Tucker, music; Danske Dandridge (1854-1914), poem

Story

from Lantern in a Poet's Garden CD: The poem describes "A restless rabble, unsubdued, A wild and haggard multitude" that accompany tears and fears.  The bright figure of Hope dispels all the shadows.  This poem inspired my piano and voice to create the music.
