A Cry

Mezzo-Soprano with Piano
(Level: Intermediate)

A Cry

by Sarah Teasdale

Oh, there are eyes that he can see,
And hands to make his hands rejoice,
But to my lover I must be
Only a voice.

Oh, there are breasts to bear his head,
And lips whereon his lips can lie,
But I must be till I am dead
Only a cry.


A Cry was first performed by Amy Williams at the University of Central Arkansas.
