Autumn River Leaves

Somewhere or other

A setting of Christina Rossetti's poem.


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.
