SONGS MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME

Dvořák’s “Songs My Mother Taught Me" is a folkloric, lilting, and wistful selection from his 1880 song cycle Gypsy Songs. The poignant lyrics speak to a mother’s tears, memories, and influence:

Songs my mother taught me, in the days long vanished;
Seldom from her eyelids were the teardrops banished.
Now I teach my children each melodious measure.
Oft the tears are flowing, oft they flow from my memory's treasure.

— Greg Anderson & Elizabeth Joy Roe
