Laima’s Hymn

SSA with soprano descant. Melody: Russian folksong “The Pear Tree.” English lyrics inspired by Latvian dainas in honor of Laima, daughter of the Sun. 3/4 time but not a waltz; gentle and very lovely. About a spiritual journey: at first Laima seems to have disappeared, but then the singer realizes She’s been there all along.
