A Green Cornfield

First line:
The earth was green, the sky was blue
1923; To my Sister
author of text

Dedicated to Head’s sister, A Green Cornfield (1923) sets Christina Rossetti (1830–1894); the music has an open-air quality with the piano introduction evoking the rippling song of the skylark hovering above a field.
