Deep thoughts on listening to Schumann’s Op. 39 Liederkreis

If I was a composer of art songs, I would write one not about small birds, but about really, really large birds. Megafauna is perhaps the great underutilized category in this type of composition.

viz.:

Der Big Bird ist des Müllers Lust
Der Big Bird!

Das muß ein schlechter Müller sein,
Dem niemals fiel der Big Bird ein,
Der Big Bird!
(Der Big Bird!)

I am surprised that no one has hit upon this concept before, as a matter of fact.
