Grown Wild (2021)

for SSA choir, violin, piano | 00:05:00

by Melissa Dunphy | text by Melissa Apperson

Commissioned by Concord Women's Chorus, Jane Ring Frank, Artistic Director.

You conjured springtime,
leaf by leaf

you brought the girl
and wrapped her in a blue day

and gave her
to me

Months, years, hear me:
I love this girl, her tendril touch
and climbing dreams,

her willingness

I’m not her mother, though
I am not the luxurious meadow

We are one,
the girl and I,
like sky

Grown up
grown wild

—Melissa Apperson
