One evening driving south along the Kapiti coast I was captivated by the sun setting into the sea which turned an oily steel blue while an early moon appeared above me. The gradual fading of light created sharp shadows in the hills while at the same time the western sky turned salmon and was ornamented with a few wispy clouds. The gum trees at Mackay's crossing were lit up like flames. I wrote the words as I drove... The piece is an art song for SATB quartet or chamber choir.
