A Wind at Rooks HavenComposer: Roxanna PanufnikPublisher: Universal PublicationsInstrumentation: FluteWritten in 1997, this piece is based on a poem by Mel Cox. The poem is coordinated with specific bars of the music.
A Wind at Rooks HavenThe sad, lovely tune played by the windOn the telegraph wiresAwaits the symphony of sylvan sighsAnd grass whispersThe mewing of the boughs entwined likeLegs of lovers - the sweet juice of loveTheir own sap.
Akin to the youth who tears his hairIn wantA fluttering, a scratch, a safe perch regainedAnd feathers resetLike the jacket of a ploughboyOn a March day.
A shriek of death as the hunterFinds a windfall in the hedgerowAnd the sad cracks of a paperCaught by a pailing postAnd bullied by the wind. Conducted by the wary grew crowsCry and the cracks from the rookery.Across the mere the glimpsesOf the moon through fastInky clouds. Mel Cox
