Lines to Fanny Brawne for soprano and piano by Malcolm Forsyth Dur: 5′
Text: John Keats
In the collected edition of Keats’ poems there appears a short, untitled piece under the name, “Lines” supposed to have been written to Fanny Brawne. Miss Brawne was the object of Keats’ devotion for several of the last years of his tragically short life, and this poem is a passionate plea for her understanding of this devotion.
Transposed down a third to G# minor.
