Miles to Go

Poetry by N.M. Bodecker ("When All the World Is Full of Snow") and Robert Frost ("Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening") put to music by William S. Wang:

Lyrics:

When All the World is Full of Snow,
I never know just where to go.

I do not want to make a track,
Not even to the shed and back.

I only want to watch and wait,
While snow moths settle on the gate,

And swarming frost flakes fill the trees,
with billions of albino bees.

I only want myself to be
as silent as a winter tree,

To hear the swirling stillness grow,
When all the world is full of snow.

(N.M. Bodecker)


Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near.

He gives his harness bells a shake
As if to ask, "Is there some mistake?"

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
And miles to go before I sleep.

(Robert Frost)

Garage Band - rockin' it again

Here’s my first song made with Garage Band and without physically playing a single instrument. A part of my brain asks rhetorically, “hey, why play like crap when you can arrange it in a snap?”

Uninspiringly called “My Song 2a” and weighing in at a svelte 1.6 MB: Download file

Garage Band - cool beans

“6-AM at Night”

My first song using Garage Band with guitars and microphones plugged directly into the computer. Neat-O.
