Blake Songs: 4. The Sick Rose:
Our first Groundhog Day birthday boy, Dr. Sam Walter, piano, is joined his son, composer & bass-baritone, David Edgar Walther, our second Groundhog
Day birthday boy. The Poem is by William Blake:
O Rose thou art sick. Has found out thy bed
The invisible worm, Of crimson joy:
That flies in the night And his dark secret love
In the howling storm: Does thy life destroy.
