A setting of the poem “The Wind Sprang up at Four O’Clock” by T.S. Eliot.

I used Sonar X1, bass, Rhodes piano, drums, GR-20 sax, and vocals.



The wind sprang up at four o’clock
The wind sprang up and broke the bells
Swinging between life and death
Here, in death’s dream kingdom
The waking echo of confusing strife
Is it a dream or something else
When the surface of the blackened river
Is a face that sweats with tears?
I saw across the blackened river
The camp fire shake with alien spears.
Here, across death’s other river
The Tartar horsemen shake their spears.

T. S. Eliot
1888-1965
