Trickle Drops

A setting of Whitman's "Trickle Drops" from the Calamus section of Leaves of Grass for tenor and piano. There is also an alternate version for tenor and cello.

O drops of me! trickle, slow drops,
Candid, from me falling—drip, bleeding drops,
From wounds made to free you whence you were prison'd,
From my face—from my forehead and lips
From my breast—from within where I was concealed—Press forth, red drops—confession drops,
Stain every page—stain every song I sing, every word I say, bloody drops,
Let them know your scarlet heat—let them glisten
Saturate them with yourself, all ashamed and wet,
Glow upon all I have written or shall write, bleeding drops,
Let it all be seen in your light, blushing drops.
