There was set before me a mighty hill

by heartscore



When I think on classic Rock-albums I always loved the little showstoppers between the usual Rock-songs. Second I love bands, which show diversity in their works. Take Queen as a brillant example and think on the piano-songs of Freddie Mercury like "Melancholy blues", or think on Jimmy Page's acoustic solo-tunes. On the next album of heartscore I want to show the same kind of variety. Therefore you get a piano-ballad today inspired by another short poem by Stephen Crane.


There was set before me a mighty hill,
And long days I climbed
Through regions of snow.
When I had before me the summit-view,
It seemed that my labour
Had been to see gardens
Lying at impossible distances.
