Five Lyrics is a suite of short pieces based on haiku-like poems by W.S. Merwin and a haiku by the great Japanese poet Basho. Each movement focuses on a bird(s) in nature at a particular time of day, the succession of which creates a dawn to moonlight cycle. In the last movement, the "dreams" consist of musical memories of the previous movements.
