Artist's Description

FEATURED IN: "A Place to Start Group on 10/14/11

Pastels, conte crayon and Prismacolor watercolor pencils on Canson MiTientes paper.

I was transported out of body and time listening to the music of composer John Bowen. So much so that I was inspired to write and record “In My Garden” over the tune and to also draw representative images for what I experienced on mon petit voyage. I sent my recording to Mr. Bowen who liked it enough to embellilsh his original arrangement and to do the mixing chores. I together with my partner Hernan, produced a video for the entire project and posted to YouTube.

In My Garden
Words & Melody by RoyAllenHunt © August, 2011
(Based on the Minuet for Midi by John Bowen ©2011)

I walked through my garden picking flowers for you
discarding those I thought wouldn’t do

On my table they were lovingly displayed
Waiting for you to come like you said

I sipped tea by the window and kept watch on the path
But only the wind was stirring, alas

The sun was so high in my blue sky
moving through the hours till evening was nigh

Promises you made but ne’er were kept
empty as my soul felt as I sat there and wept

The flowers on my table are still displayed
Petals now fallen crumble where they lay
fallen my spirit these past several days…
How long it has been since you came this way

With winter settled in on my garden once green
trees are bereft — undressed of their leaves
A bitter, bitter cold resides within me
Here in my garden cold and lonely

In my garden the birds will ne’er again sing
no flowers will bloom and there’ll be no more spring
Here in my garden there’ll be no more spring
