Still Colors (Velvet Shoes)

SATB a cappella
Text: Elinor Wylie
Duration: 3.5 min
Publisher: Alliance Music Publications, Inc.

Written for the Oregon Bach Festival, American Creators Chorus. Dedicated to Kyle Canton.


Let us walk in the white snow
In a soundless space;
With footsteps quiet and slow,
At a tranquil pace,
Under veils of white lace.

I shall go shod in silk,
And you in wool,

We shall walk through the still town
In a windless peace;
We shall step upon white down,
Upon silver fleece,
Upon softer than these.

We shall walk in velvet shoes:
Wherever we go
Silence will fall like dews
On white silence below.
We shall walk in the snow.
