Composer's Notes: I really tried to depict the two themes of the text: love and thought, as imagined by Robert Frost in his poem "Bond and Free". Love struck me as being grounded, preoccupied with things on earth. Thought was much more ethereal and boundless. I had a specific rhythmic scheme and key center for Love, and a contrasting theme for Thought. I think the two dualities pair well together and help give clarity to the text, which is somewhat abstract on its own.
