You cannot dream things lovelier

composer
1936
author of text
from The Unknown Goddess

 
The words for You cannot dream things lovelier (1936) are taken from the collection The Unknown Goddess by Humbert Wolfe (1885–1940); Head’s use of syncopated rhythm and rich chromatic harmony established in the piano introduction perfectly matches the sensuality of the poem.
