Stephen Crane’s poem, I Looked Here was originally written to describe the poet’s search for a female love, but the pronoun has been modified to the “female seeking male” theme. The constant searching, frustration, and eventual resolve of seeking one’s soulmate is the theme of this setting, with a surprise or two along the way. Listen for the text-painting and the ebb and flow of love’s journey.
