Cycle of Seven Songs : "Whimsical, macabre, deeply spiritual: the poetry of Vachel Lindsay has long attracted me for it's wild variety, lyric sensability and deep emotional impact. Although made famous by such poems as "The Congo" and "General William Booth Marches into Heaven" (the title poems for the anthologies from which "The Moon Songs" were selected), I have been attracted mainly to his more concise poems 'in which the moon is the principle figure of speech.' These poems explore human perspective, Linday's hypothesis being that 'the moon is a mirror' in which we find what we bring. Lindsay wrote many of these moon poems and it was difficult to choose between so many fine poems. In the end, I based my selection on variety, dramatic contrast and a progression towards my own view of the moon, one that is spiritual." - M. Ryan Taylor
