You Have Made Me, Earth features long melodic lines which weave and soar, mingle and intertwine, representing life’s flowing pulse.

—Matthew Emery


Earth, you have made me
Of smoke and the flying Of strong-winged birds.

And the freedom of wind, With the freedom of waves,
Has entered into my being.

From dust of a moth-wing You have made me, Earth.
