There Will Come Soft Rains is a setting of the Sara Teasdale poem of the same name.  The poem presents an eerily tranquil vision of a post-apocalyptic world where nature regains control. The free rhythms of the piece are designed to evoke a slightly unbalanced speech-like feel, while the slippery chromaticism underscores the unsettling mood of the text.
