THE name Sea Drift was chosen by Whitman, as a general title, to cover a number of poems inspired by the sea and its life. Delius has set only part of the first of the series-that which begins ' Out of the cradle endlessly rocking.' The lines he has chosen are from ' Once Paumanok ' to ' We two together no more,' a little over fifty lines from the end of this first poem-one in which Whitman reaches his highest level of imaginative lyrical expression. On the sea-shore he sees ' two feathered guests from Alabama,' and interprets the thoughts of one of the birds when his mate leaves him and does not return.
In and around Delius's music is the sense of the sea, its power and loneliness, and the sadness of the bird who longs for the mate he will never see again.
