Four Last Songs: the poems that comprise the final song cycle by Richard Strauss

My thanks to my friend Brian for introducing me to these poems by Hermann Hesse and Joseph Karl Benedikt Freiherr von Eichendorff, which where set to music by Richard Strauss https://intranslation.brooklynrail.org/german/four-last-songs-the-poems-that-comprise-the-final-song-cycle-by-richard-strauss/.

My favourite is, I think September by Hermann Hesse.

      I always appreciate you taking the time to comment, Michael. I hope you are OK with the temperature in Germany. Its also been quite hot here in the UK, although not as extreme in temperature as it was back in July. I hope you also have a good weekend. Kevin
