Kindertotenlieder
Nun will die Sonn' so hell aufgeh'n; Nun seh' ich wohl, warum so dunkle Ftammen; Wenn dein Mtitterlein tritt zur Tiir herein; Oft denk' ich, sie sind nur ausgegangen I ; In diesem Wetter, in diesem Braus
Kathleen Ferrier (contralto)

by William Plomer
1-The Wilds of Johannesburg
This summer, after thirty years, William Plomer returned as a visitor to South Africa, where he was born. As a boy he used to enjoy wandering on a wild rocky place outside Johannesburg, which was still a mining town; this year he found Johannesburg a metropolis, and the rocks now part of a park, ' The Wilds,' within it. In this change he found much meaning, and he tells of his impression that the real wilds of South Africa are now to be found in the busy centres of its industrial revolution.
