This work is an attempt to pay homage to a young French poetess, who died prematurely after a long and painful illness, Sabine Sicaut (1913-1928) whose poetic talents were widely acclaimed in her time. Her poems are full of resonance and maturity, while at the same time, retaining all the spontaneous wonderment of a child. The titles of each piece echo some of her verses, but the music therein is not necessarily illustrative. A second work has been added in the same vein (Vocalises). The cover picture is from an old postcard showing the sycamore shaded walkway to her family residence aptly named Villa La Solitude.
