Ah, moon of my delight

from In a Persian Garden (1896)
author of text
translator of text

The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly—and lo! the bird is on the wing.

This quote appears on the frontispiece of the autobiography of Liza Lehmann, written the year she died in London—1918. It epitomizes the feelings conjured up so beautifully in Ah, moon of my delight from her 1896 Omar Khayyám song cycle In a Persian Garden. This gifted composer-singer came from a family of poets and painters. Her parents were friends of Liszt and she, as a young girl, was accompanied at the piano by none other than Clara Schumann. Ah, moon of my delight is a miracle of gorgeous melodic line and compelling harmonies.

from notes by Robert White 1995
