Good Morning, Midnight

(1999)

"Good Morning Midnight" is the third and final song of André Previn's Three Dickinson Songs.

Good Morning—Midnight—
by Emily Dickinson


Good Morning—Midnight—
I’m coming Home—
Day—got tired of Me—
How could I—of Him?


Sunshine was a sweet place—
I liked to stay—
But Morn—didn’t want me—now—
So—Goodnight—Day!


I can look—can’t I—
When the East is Red?
The Hills—have a way—then—
That puts the Heart—abroad—


You—are not so fair—Midnight—
I chose—Day—
But—please take a little Girl—
He turned away!
