The Sharp Edges of the Night is a song cycle on four poems from Amy Lowell’s Swordblades and Poppy Seed (1914). Each text deals with love, though none of them (except possibly the third) are pure expressions of the positive aspects of that emotion. A number of shared images link the four poems, creating a unified exploration of the light and dark sides of narrator’s, or in this case the singer’s, need for her beloved.
