I’ll be honest, I struggled with the timing on this piece. I had initially tried with 4/4 timing and it just wasn’t working out for me. Maybe I need to rethink it. I’m no poet and timing is a weak spot for me, but I think the text is a triple meter until the last 2 lines (beginning at measure 9) switch to quadruple meter. Hence the 6/4 as it sort of fit both in this case. I stand to be corrected on this, and welcome input.

On the point of harmony not changing more than once or twice per measure, could you expand a on that? Do you mean not to switch between say for example a 1 chord and 5 chord no more than once or twice?

Point taken on establishing a pattern, I’ll try to make some adjustments on that.

Thank you!
