Somewhere or other


Song for solo voice and piano.  Music by John F Paul.  Text by Christina Rossetti.


Somewhere or other there must surely be

     The face not seen, the voice not heard,

The heart that not yet – never yet – ah me!

     Made answer to my word.


Somewhere or other, may be near or far;

     Past land and sea, clean out of sight;

Beyond the wandering moon, beyond the star

     That tracks her night by night.


Somewhere or other, may be far or near;

     With just a wall, a hedge, between;

With just the last leaves of the dying year

     Fallen on a turf grown green.
