Story behind the song
I discovered Sara Teasdale's poetry some time ago. I made several melodies to some of her poems. Now, I've been looking for publisher and right performer.... If Eva Cassidy could sing it...
Lyrics
Original lyrics by Sara Teasdale (1884-1933): The Falling Star I saw a star slide down the sky, Blinding the north as it went by, Too burning and to quick to hold, Too lovely to be bought or sold Good only to make wishes on And then forever to be gone.
